Remarkable Images of Protest

As I've mentioned in the past, Environmental Graffiti is an excellent place to find photo essays to share in an Environmental Science classroom. Today, Environmental Graffiti posted a photo essay that could be a great discussion starter in a social studies classroom. Remarkable Images of Activism from the Last Fifty Years features photographs, with captions, of protests from Tienanmen Square, protests of the 1999 WTO Conference in Seattle, and Anti Iraq War protests.

Applications for Education
This collection of images could be used as conversation starters when introducing the events pictured. The collection could also be used to start discussions about protests in general.
