Photos from the WTO Protests in Hong Kong, Day 3, page 6

by Puck Lo
After the procession reached the designated protest area, the Korean farmers, Via Campesina, and other farmer's groups who participated in the procession sat down, exhausted but high spirited.

At one point, one protester spontaneously stripped down and jumped into the harbor, in a move similar to the mass diving on Tuesday. There are no reports for his arrest at this time.

Many of the farmers dispersed when night fell. Those remaining sat on the ground in rows, holding candles while several women from the Korean Women Peasants Association delivered speeches that moved many in the audience to tears.

No confrontation with authorities ensued.
