Three people shout in different directions with varying exaggerated expressions of rage, confusion and anticipation. They are all wearing black stab vests with the words ‘NO DNR’ stencilled onto the vests in white paint. Jess, a white woman with curly brown hair is in the centre of the image. Her mouth is open and she is looking upwards as she shouts. Charmaine, a light skinned black woman of mixed heritage, is behind Jess to the left of the image.
