Photos of the Day: May 2, 2013

A protestor holds an over-sized cardboard, demonic, caricature head of billionaire tycoon Victor Li, chairman of Cheung Kong Infrastructure Holdings Ltd., as hundreds of dock workers take part in a protest over pay and working conditions on May 1, 2013 in Hong Kong. According to the Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions, the stevedores have lowered their wage demands as the strike action over pay and working conditions enters its 34th day. Labor day is celebrated across South East Asia on May 1 and is seen as an opportunity to acknowledge the social and economic accomplishments of the workers.
