Pictures from today’s protests in Vietnam against the mass industrial poisoning of the ocean, and the government’s lack of action or transparency over the environmental disaster. The corporate media is understating both the size and extent of the protest, as well as the violence meted out by the government. Reuters, for example is reporting that:
A group of protesters sat on the bank of a big lake in Hanoi before police shepherded them on to a waiting bus, Reuters witnesses said. Demonstrators were also put on buses at a square in front of the nearby Hanoi Opera House.
See pictures below to witness examples of ‘shepharding’.
