There are many forms of protest, many ways to express an objection to particular events, situations, policies, and even people.  Protests can also take many forms - from individual statements to mass demonstrations - both peaceful and violent. In the last 30 days, there have been numerous protests across the globe in many countries.  The following post is a collection of only some of those protests, but the images convey a gamut of emotions as citizens stand up for their political, economic, religious and lifestyle rights.  -- Paula Nelson (51 photos total)
As protesters sleep in Zuccotti Park, N.Y. police officers receive instructions. A group of activists calling themselves Occupy Wall Street targeted the Financial District for more than a week of demonstrations in late September. The group said they sought to bring attention to corporate malfeasance, social inequality, and the yawning gap in income between America's rich and poor. (Eduardo Munoz/Reuters)

I present you with this photo knowing full-well that my colleague, David Arnott, just published an image of Russian P.M. Putin. But you can't get too much of a good thing, and pictures of top Russian government officials doing quirky things cannot be published with too great a frequency.

Let's just hope a few U.S. Presidential candidates provide us some fodder in our current election cycle that rival what we've seen in the past.
