Escape artist and Falun Gong practitioners on Grafton Street.

I took this image at the end of Grafton St. (shopping street) in Dublin in 2012 December. On the left hand side of the image a few Chinese activists are protesting silently against persecution of tens of thousands of Falun Gong practitioners, closed in concentration camps. On the right hand side an “escape artist” surrounded by a big crowd of tourists. He is pedaling a one wheel bike, wearing a straitjacket, chains and locks. With his voice amplified, he is talking about escape.
