A strong labor movement

Sex workers in south Korea are protesting against a police crack down on their trade. Some women even tried to set themselves on fire, in a desperate attempt to attract attention to their cause and sympathy from the public, I would imagine.

The whole protest, it seems, was really well organized with everyone dressed the same way, banging inflated sticks to make noise, and leaders leading the whole thing. Some women were also covered in weird body paint, not too sure what the significance of this is.

Here are some images:

The live video images are even more powerful, that's some really well organized labor movement and really poignant images, when that women doses herself in flammable liquid, and the others that are rolling in anger on the flor

I guess cash fattened and lazy Western unions have something to learn from these women.
