Irish labour leader James (Jim) Larkin in Donegall Street Place (the entry below the John Hewitt) adorned with an G8 protest placard. Larkin organised strikes in Belfast in 1907 (WP). According to the antig8protest twitter feed, a festival is being put on in Belfast to rival the G8 meeting in Enniskillen (see previously: Putting On The Ritz | G8 Cover-Up).
The pose is based on this (unattributed) image:
