Taking their desires to be heard to the streets, thousands of protesters and demonstrators around the world have recently been marching, shouting, praying, and engaging in both theater and violence to make their points. From quiet, prayerful requests for peace in Mexico to the violent takeover of an office building in London to student demonstrators in Chile and gay rights activists making a statement to the Pope in Spain, the past two weeks has been full of protest. Their reasons are many - anger with austerity measures, frustration with incumbent governments and globalization, frustration with policies in other countries - even protests against other protesters. Collected here is a view of protests and demonstrations around the world over the past two weeks. (50 photos total)

With the Glob, it’s probably to inspire people to protest the Pubbie-controlled House next year.
Oh, and I forgot to add that these types of articles may be leading up to the Glob’s swan song as a viable ongoing “business”.
I don't know why, but for some reason nothing warms my heart more than Korean or Japanese police/military personnel quelling a disturbance. I remember seeing a news report about a massive student uprising in South Korea some years ago, and as I watched the South Korean police deal with them I could only think of that infamous quote from Colonel Kurtz in Apocalypse Now: "If I had ten divisions of those men, our troubles here would be over very quickly."
No bias here #47; Do you notice how they try to tie Conservative Congressional leaders Rep. Mike Pence, and Sen. Jim DeMint to a poor example of a tea-party sign against Obama??
An odd mixture of whacko freaks and genuine martyrs. I wonder if the editors at the Glob understand the difference.
#18, Did that thing in the poncho fall out her butt?
