    In this picture taken Dec. 17, 2011, friends and relatives of Sonia Pierre, her picture seen on a T-shirt, attend a Mass in her honor in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Pierre, a human rights activist who fought discrimination against poor Dominicans of Haitian descent since she was a child, died of a heart attack on Dec. 4, 2011. Many people in the Dominican Republic question whether anyone can fill the void that Pierre's death left in the movement to protect the rights of Haitians in the Dominican Republic at a time when they face discrimination, deportation and the loss of citizenship.

    In this picture taken on Dec. 16, 2011, residents wait to cross a road in Batey 43 in Villa Altagracia, about 25 miles north of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. In November, the Dominican Supreme Court upheld a 2007 law aimed at reducing the use of fake documents, which has led the government to confiscate or annul birth certificates for the children of Haitian immigrants, many of whom were given work visas in previous decades that the government now refuses to recognize. Nonprofit groups estimate that at least 1,600 Dominicans have been denied their documents as a result of the law, and some activists worry the government will continue to target the estimated 500,000 to 1 million ethnic Haitians living in the Dominican Republic now that human rights activist Sonia Pierre has died.

    History and Religious teacher Derek Shaw, 43, poses beside the Luas tracks in Dublin November 17, 2011. Gay, lesbian or bisexual teachers in many Irish schools -- which are still dominated by the Catholic Church -- risk discrimination or even the sack if they reveal their sexuality, thanks to a law that permits religious employers to penalise employees for actions undermining their religious standards.
