The Fashionable Rioter

Please allow me a moment to give props to the riotous fashionistas. Good fashion is a privilege, and perhaps a shallow pursuit being that global capitalism is strangling millions to death. But, one of this blogs' aims is to promote the riot aesthetic. So today we celebrate those who, despite their desperate situations, took a moment to look good--damn good.

Soweto, South Africa (update)

Paris 68'

Weatherman/Days of Rage

Mexican Revolution

Lawyers in Pakistan



* Pardon the over representation of men here, I had a hard time scavenging the diversity of riot pics that I know exists somewhere...
