Nice, aren't they?

Hard to believe, though, that Japan and South Korea have been at each other's throats over this useless chunk of rocks for weeks now.

I've tried to collect some pictures of South Korean protests. These are primarily in response to a Japanese prefecture passing a resolution that asserted Japanese dominance over the islands last month.


An anti-Japan demonstration in Korea.


A woman cuts off her finger in protest.


Apparently, one way to manifest your anger is to protest in the nude.


Tearing apart a Japanese flag.


I have no idea what this wanker was thinking.


Boxes with the Japanese flag crossed out.


Burning the Japanese flag.


An array of businessmen.


A man sets himself on fire in front of the Japanese embassy.


Shaving their heads in protest.


Burning the Japanese flag, again.


Someone tries to stop a protestor from stabbing himself with a knife.


Arguably the most ridiculous idea ever: to assert South Korean claims over the islands by building a huge monument on top one of them.
