Tokyo, Japan, 26 March 1978. Protest against the construction of Narita Airport. Photo Credits: Sadayuki Mikami, Japan, The Associated Press.

It seems that someone was using self immolation to protest like the Buddhist monk in Vietnam but this time he's trying to make it spectacular by charging at police.

April 1980. A kid in Uganda about to die of hunger with a missionary.Karamoja district, Uganda. Photo Credits: Mike Wells, United Kingdom.

There is a stark contrast between the child's and missionary's hand. The photo is good example to contrast the rich with the poor. Another fact to note is people usually starve to death due to the lack of money to buy food (there is no shortage) when crops fail.

Beirut, Lebanon, 18 September 1982. Aftermath of massacre of Palestinians by Phalangists in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps. Photo Credits: Robin Moyer, USA, Black Star for Time.

Moyer saw Israeli flares burst above the camps, and went there to discover piles of bodies - brutally shot. He photographed for hours surrounded by the smell of death, while Israeli soldiers joked around. The killers were never brought to justice. In this cruel world Americans and Jews are treated with respect while Palestinians are considered sub-humans. Palestinians are to be slaughtered and then joked about.
