Santiago Chile Riot Police Detain 552 people Aug 4th, 2011 (Amature Video)
I'm struck by how many of these people look malnourished. Especially some of the military units had individuals with clear signs of insufficient caloric intake. This stupid parade for few at the expense of starving the people. God, please save North Korea from their evil dictatorship.I'm struck by how many of these people look malnourished.

The city of San Antonio, Texas passed an ordinance in 2007 that charges people thousands of dollars to march in the city streets.
The Free Speech coalition and the Int'l Woman's Day march planning committee have been organizing against the ordinance for two years. These organizations/groups community members have been blockwalking, making phone calls, having house meetings and demonstrating several times. Both organizations have filed a lawsuit against the city. The lawsuit is now in the 5th circuit court, however, the community continues to gather thousands of signatures and members not just relying on the justice system but continuing to mobalize more and more people on this issue.
This video is a call out to citizens of San Antonio to come out on August 8th and defend your rights to free speech!

Hundreds of Tibetan exiles defied police and resumed their six-month march from northern India to Tibet to protest Beijing's hosting of this summer's Olympic Games. The march began on 10 March 2008, Tibetan Uprising Day, the 49th anniversary of a failed uprising against Chinese rule that forced the Dalai Lama into exile. Tibetans around the world commemorated this day with pro-Tibet demonstrations and protests.
The exiled Tibetan marchers are reportedly determined to complete their journey despite being banned by police from leaving their area near Dharmsala, the northern Indian city that is seat of the Tibetan government in exile.
"The exile groups say China is attempting to stamp out Tibetan Buddhist culture and increase the government's presence in Tibet. Beijing maintains that Tibet is historically part of China."
Human rights groups and pro-Tibet groups are angry that the International Olympic Association allowed the Olympics to be hosted by a country they criticise for being repressive and torturous.

The streets of New York City have certainly witnessed its share of acts of civil disobedience, violence and rebellion. Dating back as far as the Draft Riots of 1863, very often, the disenfranchised would take to the streets when opposing the governments unfair policies and practices. Eight years ago when an unarmed African immigrant by the name of Amadou Diallo was shot at 41 times (hit 19 times) by 4 New York City Police Officers, the people took to the streets charging the NYPD with police brutality. Over the next two years that followed, a series of marches and protests was set into motion that would forever change the lives of New Yorkers. At its conceptual root, spearheaded by Rev Al Sharpton and the National Action Network, was the march for justice for Diallo. However, in the midst of the struggles a new breed of protestor began to emerge. Along the side of the activist stood politicians, students and professors, unions and laborers. The shout of No Justice - No Peace! What do we want? JUSTICE! Now became What do we want??BOOKS! HOUSING! JOBS! Diallos death became a symbol for justice on all fronts. 360 Media recounts this bitter and yet compelling part of New York City history in the upcoming documentary entitled 365 Days of Marching The Amadou Diallo Story DIRECTED, WRITTEN & PRODUCED by Veronica Keitt CO-PRODUCED BY Michael Drake, Ozzie Thompson, Nat Woods, Darryl Stith SPECIAL APPEARANCES by Rev Al Sharpton, Seiko & Kadiatou Diallo, the parents of Amadou Diallo, David N.
