Vietnam protests 2011 08 22

A Vietnamese protestor shouts anti-China slogans on a street close to the Chinese embassy in Hanoi on July 17, 2011. About 50 people, including some of the country's well known intellectuals, have staged anti-China protests over an escalating maritime dispute with China in the South China Sea. The rally was quickly dispersed by police after a dozen protestors were arrested. An unprecedented series of protests -- which are not common in authoritarian Vietnam -- have taken place peacefully in Hanoi.
