Feel free to post photographs. No real restrictions just use your best judgment and try not to post anything too graphic.

All of the photos I'm about to post are all political. Please do not feel restricted to political pictures, anything and everything is welcome!

If possible, please include a brief description of the photo.




This picture is of a Hutu in Rawanda. He was slashed by his fellow tribesman for not supporting a massacre.

Probably the most powerful picture I have ever seen:



Who was Thich Quang Duc, one might ask: The Self-Immolation of Thich Quang Duc – “One day in early June, 1963, a 73 year old Buddhist monk named Thich Quang Duc stopped in a busy street in Saigon, the Capital City of South Vietnam”...and, he then sat down in the...“busy downtown intersection and had gasoline poured over him by two fellow monks. As a large crowd of Buddhists and reporters watched, he lit a match and, over the course of a few moments, burned to death while he remained seated in the lotus position.”

“As he burned he never moved a muscle, never uttered a sound, his outward composure in sharp contrast to the wailing people around him.”




Different monk, same time period.
