    Professional protesters

    i'm sure most countries pay people to protest for them, rent a crowd that sort of thing.

    A good book that has some pics of this is called Jakarta Inside out (they have made one for bangkok now also)

    in it this one guy has been photogrpahed 3 times for 3 different protests for different sides, he was even wearing the same shirt.

    So imagine my surprise this morning when i'm reading BBC and see the same man's face again!
