Riot police use pepper spray as South Korean farmers try to break through a police barrier during an anti-globalisation protest in Hong Kong December 14, 2005. With little prospect of a Hong Kong breakthrough in their row over market access for farm goods, the 149 World Trade Organisation member states have focused on wrapping up a trade support package for poor nations.

An anti-World Trade Organisation (WTO) protester pumps his fist while floating at Victoria Harbour near the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, the main venue of the WTO conference, December 13, 2005. Riot police used pepper spray to hold back anti-globalisation protesters in Hong Kong on Tuesday as a meeting of ministers from WTO nations got underway at a convention centre about 1 km away. About 70, mostly South Korean, protesters leapt into the harbour, where they bobbed in the murky water wearing orange life-jackets and punching the air with their fists.

Anti-death penalty protester Deborah Moore holds a candle for convicted murderer Stanley Tookie Williams in front of the San Quentin prison in San Quentin, California, December 12, 2005. California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger denied clemency on Monday to Williams, citing the former Crips gang leader's lack of remorse for four brutal murders. The rejection, following the denial of last-minute appeals by two top courts, clears the way for Williams to be executed by lethal injection at 12:01 a.m. (0801 GMT) on Tuesday for murdering four people in two 1979 petty robberies around Los Angeles.
