Nicholas Kristof, director of the New York Times Beijing bureau in 1989, remembers the time period and days leading up to the protests in Tiananmen Square in 1989.

The Processional Arts Workshop created a “Procession of Confession” to draw attention to government surveillance. I saw this over the weekend. I had no idea it was a politically charged protest.

As Gawker explains: Friday’s “sheepstorm” was a protest by France’s Farmers’ Federation against reforms to the European Union’s Common Agricultural Policy. They fear cuts to subsidies for smaller farms will speed the industrialization of agriculture and cost farmers their jobs. This is kind of funny, no?
