People in orangejacket jumped into the sea to protest against the WTO



Korean farmers who suffered from agricultural goods being dumped from overseas with huge subsidies by the goverment.




Thai activists


Is this what we call "Performance Art"?








This is a traditional Korean ceremony during their demonstrations. They kneel and knock their head onto the ground once after every 3 steps, meaning a respect for the land, and the land belongs to all people instead of being cornered by the privileged.





Different colors, indifferent call.







Merry X'mas to HK.





This Korean just got up after jumping into the sea to protest against the WTO.







Some university students in HK launched a hunger strike to declare support for the farmers.





Alady showing her despisement upon the authority.



A guy giving a speech to the cops.







Catholics trying to settle the situation from hostility to peace.





Revolt broken out after this iron railing was pulled down.



The cops served the protestors with water hose.







The cops deployed in formations after a massive violence between they and the protestors.







Demonstrators gathered into a group after the whole area has been blockaded by the cops.



Although the farmers fight brutally, they are easy and friendly persons in actual.



Let's pray for a better tomorrow.



Free Trade, Fair Trade.

Thanks for your comment.

But would you mind telling me if there is any weakness of the message? Do you mean either the expressions or the ideas?

Sorry for my broken english, and may I know your opinion towards the WTO and the protestors?

Free trade and fair trade are a lot better than no trade or restricted trade. The sad part is that every country has a protectionist attitude when it comes to their products!! Nice photo's Al!! Your english is fine by the way!!

Nice photos, I notice some shoots with ISO800 and shutter speed as low as 1/5.9, seem still quite clear and the noise still consider acceptable
Look P850 is a great cam :|

Free trade isn't fair trade, and I believe that's what these protests are about. The protestors want fair trade. Free trade = race to the bottom; fair trade = improved standards of living. The WTO is all about big business getting richer faster (via Free trade) at the expense of workers and common people and their standard of living.

Who exactly are the WTO, and what authority do they have in telling people how they should run their country anyway? They're nothing but a bunch of "Yes" men (and women) working for the man as far as I can tell.
