Yellow: Minor protests - Mauritina, Sudan, Somalia, Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Oman


Reminds me of the poem, War Photographer, by Carol Ann Duffy.

Excerpt:
A hundred agonies in black-and-white
from which his editor will pick out five or six
for Sunday's supplement. The reader's eyeballs prick
with tears between bath and pre-lunch beers.
From aeroplane he stares impassively at where
he earns a living and they do not care.

And, do they care?
