Tibetans in exile protest Chinese occupation

Tibetan refugees in India shouting slogans while arrested for protesting the arrival of Chinese president Hu Jintao in New Delhi. He is attending a conference of BRICS members (Brazil, Russia, India, China, & South Africa). BRICS is an alliance of what are called developing or newly industrialized countries distinguished by the immense size of their economies, populations & their influence on global politics--which just goes to show the folly of the term "developing nation". Hu Jintao claims BRICS nations are “defenders & promoters of developing countries & a force for peace.” Tell that to the Tibetans! Or to China's child workers! Or to the small farmers dispossessed around the world in Chinese land grabs! (Photo by Adnan Abidi/Reuters)
