“If the shoe hits…”

A prospective free trade pact with the U.S. drew the wrath of tens of thousands of farmers and other workers in Seoul.

The photo shows a protester targeting riot police in Seoul on November 11, 2007.  During the rally of 20,000-50,000 people, police arrested 100 saying that more than 10 officers were hurt.
