(VNRN) – As the dispute over a Chinese oil rig in the South China Sea, in an area claimed by Vietnam, continues into its second month, China moved another rig nearby. The AP wire story on this new development notes,

“Vietnamese authorities broke up a small protest against the Chinese move on Thursday. About a dozen people gathered at a park in central Hanoi and chanted slogans such as “Down with Chinese aggression” for several minutes before being dispersed. At least two protesters were taken away.

That sterile description doesn’t quite capture what actually happened. The images here truly are worth a thousand words each.
