The Resistance Resistance Logo is one of the two factions in Ingress, represented in blue in the game. Where the Enlightened Enlightend Logo are convinced the Shapers are trying to help humanity evolve, the Resistance believes Shapers are here for their own purposes and want to save humanity from their influence. As a result the Resistance and Enlightened are in a constant state of war for control over the alien portals and mind control fields.
