Pro-British demonstrators have taken to the streets, in sometimes violent protest, almost every night since December 3, when the city council announced it would no longer fly the Union Flag all year round at City Hall. Protesters have pelted police with petrol bombs, fireworks, bottles and stones. AFP PHOTO / PETER MUHLY (Photo credit should read PETER MUHLY/AFP/Getty Images)
