This is Mohamed Bouazizi protesting corruption and starting the Arab Spring.
 
Tunesia was in the news, a group of politicians won the Nobel peace prize. I thought these self-immolation guys deserve some respect. No bigger honour than a MABB thread.

Here is Jan Palach after the end of the 1968 Prague Spring. The Czechoslovakians had something nice in mind but were stopped by the Warsaw Pact combined army :frown:
