Photos from the WTO Protests in Hong Kong, Day 2

by Puck Lo and Handle
The Korean farmers performed cultural dances and drummed outside the department store. Speakers thanked Hong Kong residents for their warmth and hospitality in spite of the unfavorable press coverage that had been circulating about Korean protesters.

The assembly, which had been calm, then broke out into unexpected dancing as the drumming rapidly intensified. The contrast was startling. Previously placid faces of the farmers—mostly men in their thirties and older—shone as they kicked their legs recklessly. Dancing in a snakelike formation, the farmers circled the area and pushed further into the street as confused cops watched from afar and reporters jostled for better positions. Korean farmers, Via Campesina delegates, and other anti-WTO activists stomped and danced upon a red, white and blue flag of skulls and stripes on which the word “Fuck” had been written prominently.

The flag says "Fuck!" on it, but someone is stomping on it.
