Anonymous Protester by morgoth87 Anonymous Protester by morgoth87
Protest after Gorilla cause which emerged in december 2011, tying politicians from both benches to corrupt ties, cronyism and parallel financing of political parties. Many people are outraged and about 2000-4000 people come to express their frustration with current political situation.

After peaceful protest at Slovak National Uprising square and in front of Presidential palace, crowd moves to Parliament, where police already prepared some minor barricade. After few minutes, crowd breaches barricades and is stopped at the door of parliament by armored policemen.

Luckily, protest was relatively peaceful afterwards and crowd dispersed about hour later.

27.1.2012 in Bratislava, Slovakia

morgoth, you should have the city of morgoth as your character picture not the tower of Orthanc. Sorry, just couldn't keep the nerdiness in me.

Actually, it's not Orthanc, but crop of the picture of Morgoth from John Howe :D

Well, if I were called Morgoth with Ungoliant and two trees, I would have used whole picture... This way, I only needed part with Morgoth :D So I took it and removed the rest :D

Both photographer (me) and anonymized person on the picture are guys :D
At least I think that that person is a guy, I had no way of knowing, until he found this picture on facebook and was surprised that someone took such picture of him :D

A lot of the protesters in American are sporting the Guy Fawkes masks. I do enjoy this shot quite a lot though because the composition is great with the protesters taking up the entire frame :thumbsup:

In terms of a journalistic shot, this photo is great, but just needs something in the background to make it clearer what it's about. Awesome shot though. Glad to hear that protests CAN still go peacefully.

I've found this one extremely familiar. (maybe you've heard - Polish government not so long ago signed ACTA treaty which may cause in censorship of Internet. And now everybody are protesting against it)
Now Guy Fawkes became quite a popular guy everywhere I guess :D

Yeah, of course I heard of it :)
But right now, Slovakia may be suffering from gorilla effect ( [link] ;) ) and nobody protests against ACTA.

And actually, there was only a few people with Guy Fawkes mask, but they appeared a lot in my photos... I just coudln't resist because I really like V for Vendetta :) If you want to look at them, I added link to image description (I forgot yesterday -_-; ).
