    35 Moments Of Violence That Brought Out Incredible Human Compassion from around the world.

    These moments, which are contradictory vis a vis conflict tell us one thing: Beyond all factions and fractions the human element surfaces. The politics has the clout to cloud the innocence of a man.

    Earlier this December, Ukrainians participated in their largest popular protest since 2004. The 2013 protests were shrouded with violence from both sides, including 200 protesters who commandeered a digger and attacked the presidential palace. The protests and riots followed the Government’s decision to side with Russia rather than the European Union.

    Child touches his reflection during a KKK demonstration [Georgia, USA, 1992]
    [​IMG]


    The young child in KKK attire became famous when this image hit the presses because of the way that it showed the innocence of children. Although the child is only known by his first name, Josh, the photographer and trooper met in 2012, 20 years after the image was taken.
