Egypt Protests Morsi Photos


Muslim Brotherhood and Egyptian President Morsi supporters carry two bodies who were killed during Wednesday's clashes during their funeral outside Al Azhar mosque, the highest Islamic Sunni institution, Friday, Dec. 7, 2012. During the funeral, thousands Islamist mourners chanted, "with blood and soul, we redeem Islam," pumping their fists in the air. "Egypt is Islamic, it will not be secular, it will not be liberal," they chanted as they walked in a funeral procession that filled streets around Al-Azhar mosque. Thousands of Egyptians took to the streets after Friday midday prayers in rival rallies and marches across Cairo, as the standoff deepened over what opponents call the Islamist president's power grab, raising the specter of more violence.

Thousands of people have taken to the streets of Argentina's capital, Buenos Aires, in protest at the government of Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner.

Opposition activists used social networks to mobilise the march, which they said was one of the biggest anti-government protests in a decade.

Those gathered said they were angry at rising inflation, high levels of crime and high-profile corruption cases.

THIS IS WHAT WINNING LOOKS LIKE - PART 1






I didn’t plan on spending six years covering the war in Afghanistan.

I went there in 2007 to make a film about the vicious fighting between undermanned, underequipped British forces and the Taliban in Helmand, Afghanistan’s most violent province.

But I became obsessed with what I witnessed there—how different it was from the conflict’s portrayal in the media and in official government statements.

TURKISH REBEL IN 90 SECONDS! (THE GREATEST RESISTANCE TO THE POLICE IN THE WORLD HISTORY)
<p></p>

After a series of peaceful demonstrations for preserving a recreational area in Istanbul city center which is planned to demolished for the construction of a shopping mall, Turkish police attacked the protesters violently with tear gas and water cannon, directly targeting their faces and bodies.

Dozens of protesters are hospitalized and access to the park is blocked without any legal basis.

Turkish media, directly controlled by the government or have business and political ties with it, refuse to cover the incidents.

Press agencies also blocked the information flow.

Please share this message for the world to become aware of the police state created by AKP of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, which is often considered to be a model for other Middle Eastern countries.

Turkish democracy expects your help. Thank you!

Ireland is protesting

Raw: Belfast Riot Protesters Attack Police with bricks | Royal Ave, Belfast 10 August 2013

Hundreds of Protestant loyalist protesters clashed with riot police in Belfast on Friday to protest an upcoming Irish Republican parade through the city.
Riot police were called in and were attacked by a barrage of bricks and bottles, along with other missiles.
There were reports that 26 police officers were injured, five of whom were hospitalized.
The disorder began in the Royal Avenue shopping district, as Protestants blocked the route Catholic Republicans planned to march along to mark the introduction of internment in Northern Ireland during the period of nationalist and sectarian conflict known as 'The Troubles.' As the parade approached from north Belfast, unrest spread as loyalist Protestants and Republicans clashed near the Protestant Shankhill road area.
Owing to the clashes on Royal Avenue, the march was redirected through Belfast city center and out to West Belfast.
Less than a month ago Protestants clashed with riot police after an 'Orangemen' march was not allowed to march past the Republican Ardoyne area, north of the city.
