Transcript of Rebellion in The Hunger Games

The woods Katniss passes beyond District 12's limits in order to hunt. Her rebellion here is threefold: leaving city limits, hunting, and possessing a weapon.
She then trades her game illegally in the Hob, District 12's black market. District 13 District 13 was bombed by the Capitol for their involvement in the districts' uprising 75 years ago The silent salute "At first one, then another, then almost every member of the crowd touches the three middle fingers of their left hand to their lips and holds it out to me. It is an old and rarely used gesture of our district, occasionally seen at funerals. It means thanks, it means admiration, it means good-bye to someone you love" (24). The Mockingjay The Mockingjay are "something of a slap in the face to the Capitol. During the rebellion, the Capitol bred a series of genetically altered animals as weapons... One was a special bird called a jabberjay that had the ability to memorize and repeat whole human conversations. They were homing bids, exclusively male, that were released into regions where the Capitol’s enemies were known to be hiding.

Then, of course, the rebels fed the Capitol endless lies, and the joke was on it (...) Jabberjays mated with female mockingbirds, creating a whole new species that could replicate both bird whistles and human melodies” (43) The grand entry When Peeta and Katniss are going to be presented to the public as District 12’s tributes, Cinna tells them to hold hands.

The "romance" The idea of Katniss and Peeta making a show of their love for one another contradicts the brutality of the Hunger Games and shows themselves intellectually superior to the Gamemakers. rue's burial "I want to do something, right here, right now, to shame them, to make them accountable, to show the Capitol that whatever they do or force us to do that there is a part of every tribute they can't own. That Rue was more than a piece in their Games. And so am I."
