Pinjra Tod Demonstration; Delhi, New India, Oct 2015

Taken on 2015-10-15

Featured in this photo report are scenes of university students in Delhi protesting against sexist rules for women's hostels and the lack of proper anti-sexual harassment resources across Indian universities. The campaign is called Pinjra Tod (Break the Cage) in response to the fact that female students are routinely locked inside their hostels after dark whilst male students face no curfews. 'Images from an energetic and cathartic protest outside Telangana Bhawan (New Delhi) today by pinjratod in solidarity with the struggle of our women comrades from Maulana Azad National Urdu University (MANUU), Hyderabad. Rule-books of hostels from universities across Delhi were torn and burnt, and a memorandum was submitted to the Resident Commissioner. We also blocked the main gate of Telangana Bhawan for the duration of the protest and when VIP officials wanted to get out in their fancy cars, we demanded that they show us a permission letter from their Local Guardians and enquired if their parents knew where they were going. We told them that it would be better for their own 'safety' to remain inside the gates.' - Pinjratod facebook page

Moldovans Rally Against Government Corruption; Chisinau, Sept 2015

Taken on 2015-09-06

Tens of thousands of Moldovans rallied in the nation's capital, Chisinau, protesting a recent bank fraud that has seen $1 billion disappear from the national banking system - roughly one eighth of Moldova's gross domestic output. As a result of the fraud, the small and largely rural country's currency has depreciated significantly, raising inflation and adversely affecting already low living standards. Protesters came from all over the country and called for the resignation of President Nicolae Timofti, chanting "Victory! Bring the one billion back home!". Police put protester numbers at between 35,000 - 40,000 people - organizers put their estimates at three times as many(see Moldovan Protests 2015 Wikipedia page for more information).

Police Utilize Riot Shields During General Strike; Quito, Ecuador, Aug 2015

Taken on 2015-08-14

A general strike by a broad coalition in Ecuador not-satisfied with President Rafael Correa has paralyzed the nation. Thousands of indigenous activists, unionists, environmentalists and members of the political opposition took part in the strike. Protesters criticized proposed constitutional changes that would let Correa run for office again, without calling for a public referendum on the matter. Refusal to consult Indigenous groups on mining and oil exploration on their traditional lands, a new labor code that is seen by many as constricting on freedom of association and protest, and increased taxes were also primary reasons for the strike
