Protests are the modern way by virtue of which the common people seem to depict their disliking for an opinion or perhaps any such instance that does not quite go in accordance with the needs. While the depiction of moderate to severe protests has been a rather “common adventure” in this recent period of time, sometimes, these very protests seem to facilitate a bizarre scenario.
Have a look to them:
10. Protest against custody laws by dressing up like superheroes
Conducted by divorced dads, Jolly Stanesby, and Eddie Goreckwi, this protest was though bizarre, yet amusing too. They reported dressed like superheroes and went up to their rooftops. They portrayed a banner, which read, “A father is for life, not just conception.” The protest was basically against the federal law system prevailing under the court of justice for the biased law on custody of the child.
9. Protest by throwing shoes against President Bush
An Iraqi journalist had thrown both of his shoes at the president of the USA, George Bush as a protest against the atrocious military acts and killings of hundreds in Iraq. The shoes were basically a “farewell gift” to the president for having killed thousands of young children and thousands of women in the act of war. The name of the journalist was Muntadhar al-Zaidi. The act earned him international fame as he was proclaimed a heroic individual for standing up against an “American Bully.”
8. “Slutwalk”, the Global movement
After the controversial statement made by the Toronto Police Constable on the incident of campus rape, which stated that “woman should avoid dressing like sluts to avoid getting victimized”; the common people, including major proportions of women dressed in provocative clothing, triggered a mass protest against this commonly prevalent “blaming the victim perception”. The people gathered in large numbers and protested in an organized fashion. This movement was initiated to portray the common mindset of people whereby usually the female victim is blamed owing to their dressing styles.
7. Going Naked rather than wearing fur, the global movement
The movement was initiated by activists of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), a global organization well known for their spree of protests against the unethical slaughter and hunting of domestic and wild animals. The activists went naked for supporting their point of view, which included the protest against the use of leather products and wearable items to depict fashion since it included the slaughter of animals as well. The verses prevalent were “I would go naked rather than wearing fur”.
6. Spraying of in Belgium
This protest was led by the milkman and farm owners in Belgium against the dropping in milk prices in the country. This was a counter measure against growing inflation in the country, which resulted in substantial losses to the milk suppliers. Around 200-3000 dairy farmers gathered for the protests where they sprayed off liquid milk on the government authorities. Some farmers also brought their cows to the arena and depicting open protests by spraying milk off the animal’s mammary glands. The protest took an ugly turn when the farmers burned hay, tires and threw bottles at the police. The cows became extremely nervous with such an unruly situation and thereafter chased the people across the street in madness. A few serious injuries were also reported.
5. Don’t kill the sharks
Alice Newstead, a contemporary artist and an animal activist by nature, initiated the protest. She protested against the hunting of sharks, which has been reported to decline shark population across all species in the ocean by a drastic 80%. She made herself look like a shark by painting herself in silver and then hung herself from the hanging hooks used to hang sharks. She also pierced her skin to place the hooks and had been found hanging off the ceiling of a Paris boutique for well over an excruciating 15 minutes. She wanted to make the people aware of the fact that sharks were becoming extinct with each and every single day.
4. “Moon the balloon Eh”
Well, this was the common phrase reportedly used by over hundreds of active protesters after an American surveillance balloon was placed on surveillance above the US-Canadian borders. The local people and mass protesters identified this as an attempt to invade their personal space rather than to stop the illegal trespassing of borders. The people thereafter reportedly “pulled down their pants to show off their ass” to the balloon surveillance camera. It sure was an indigenous way of depicting human opinions to the government.
3. Chopping off the penis
A young man in Egypt was reported of having “chopped off his penis” as a form of protest against his parents. The reason was the abrupt selection of bride by the parents after having declined to accept the woman whom the man, Sheikh Eissa, loved. He reportedly cut off his testicles that the doctors were unable to reattach despite several attempted surgeries. The man did survive the incident and lives to tell of this rather “heroically horrific” deed.
2. The “pink chaddi” campaign in India
The campaign was illustrated by a group of female activists on the attacks performed on woman present at the local pub. Sri Ram Sena activists initiated the attacks as a protest against the illustration of western culture by women. They had said that the women are denting and disrespecting the Indian culture and ethnicity. The leader of the activist wing further warned the couples that they shall be married off if found loitering in the open during the Valentine Day. In response, the female activists along with a large number of supporters “gifted” the leader of “Sri Ram Sena” group with 2000 pink-colored underwear by sending it to his office.
1. “Piss on the President”
The people of Ukraine sure found an unlikely method of depicting their voices against their president, Victor Yanukovych, for restraining actions on human rights regarding sex trade, wearing the hijab in public and anti-abortion laws as well. The highly active sexist woman group in Ukraine exposed their breasts in public and openly urinated on the posters of the president. It is indeed quite a weird way to depict their voices against liberal rights for sure.
While the world seems to be influenced with a lot of “crazy hits off the recent times”, some people surely found a very unconventional and weird tactic of depicting and reciprocating their opinion against some situations. Now you must be quite aware, are not you!!
