Show of force – Police women on horses

 on 


This impressive cavalcade of Police women on horses was photographed in the centre of Sydney. It is obviously an exercise in preparation for the September APEC forum. As serious as they looked a smile broke here and there when they saw the camera. I hope the increased security measures the government is planning to deploy for the APEC forum will keep that smile as a symbol of Aussie friendliness.

Police overlooking a peaceful demonstration

These two policemen were overlooking a peaceful demonstration organised by Falun Gong supporters. The protest was against alleged organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners. Very shocking allegations. The posters were addressed to APEC ministers, in the light of up coming APEC forum in Sydney.
