Students chant anti-police slogans during a protest against the Indian governments reaction to recent rape incidents in India in front of the Presidential Palace on December 22, 2012 in New Delhi, India.

Neither tear gas nor water cannons could deter thousands of demonstrators from taking a stand in New Delhi, violating the Indian capital’s ban against protests for the second day in a row. The protesters are seeking justice for the 23-year-old woman who was gang-raped on a bus last week. According to a police spokesman, up to 35 protesters and 40 police personnel had been injured Saturday in just one of several anti-rape protests that have turned violent across India this past week.
