Protest as seen on Flickr

Flickr is a database full of photographs made by both amateurs and professionals, containing both archival and completely contemporary images. There are currently over 5 billion images in a database that is growing at a rate of about 3,000 images every minute according to the Flickr blog.
From Friday till  the end of Sunday night over 9,512 images with the word protest in the title had been posted to Flickr (Last weekend there were only 2,261.) Protests ocurred  in Bahrain, Sri Lanka, Libya, Taiwan, Poland, Germany, the U.K., the U.S., and there are other sympathetic protests in other places in the world.
To see these images go to Advanced Search and enter the word 'protest' and the name of the place.
