Digital Democracy | Empowering Civic Engagement Through Digital Citizens for Tax Justice From Hunger to Hope Rethink Afghanistan War The 8 Most Ridiculously Badass Protesters Ever Photographed Image found by the awesome Strigoi Another protester in the anti-Mubarak riots, Flaming Scarf Guy looks like he walked straight out of an anime (that he just firebombed). The context is unclear even in the original Al Jazeera photo, so we can't say if he caused that explosion, or if he just sort of appears out of the ether whenever there is an explosion.

Plenty of people see this picture and make jokes about that old action hero cliche: Cool guys don't look at explosions, they just turn and walk away. You can fight the riot cops. This is yet a third Egyptian protester, and this image completes the most epic trilogy since Lord of the Rings.
