Photoblogging Friday - 21

It's Friday, and that means another edition of Photoblogging Friday, and frankly I'm worn out downloading and reviewing publication apps. So I'll let TNM's resident photography contributor, Dean Brierly, handle this weeks PbF. Dean points to these three photographs of recent demonstrations held around the world this week:

The spirit of protest is alive and well over the world, as these photos attest.

Seoul, Korea: Police wrestle with protesters attempting to burn the North Korean flag during a protest rally.

Dublin, Ireland: Protesters express their dissatisfaction with government cutbacks in a more peaceful, yet still resolute manner.

Bangkok, Thailand: That’s not a policeman holding the automatic rifle. It’s one of the participants in a staged protest against the country’s recent military clampdown.
