25 Bizarre Protest Pieces

From Controversial Canine Activism to Guerrilla Benching

— June 25, 2011 — Naughty
I am all for a good, peaceful demonstration against the man, but these bizarre protest pieces are something else. "Normal" protests involve a group of people waving signs and singing clever and catchy songs. These protests involve people doing everything from stripping down to masquerading as members of the KKK.

As the act of protesting itself has become less taboo and interesting, organizers have been forced to come up with new ways to grab both public and media attention for their protests. It is apparently working, as most of the protests featured here received significant coverage in both the realms of physical and digital media. If you are looking for a crazy idea to help make your next protest pop, then you might want to click through these bizarre protest pieces.
