Grin and bear it

This is a nice from of protest. A Swedish advertising firm organised a Teddy Bear battalion of 1,000 bears to parachute into Belarus holding signs calling for freedom of speech and human rights.

The two protesters who carried out the stunt flew a small plane across the Lithuanian border, dropping some bears on the town of Ivianiec and the rest over southern Minsk before fleeing across the boarder again.

 

Two senior officials, the country’s top border control official and the top air force commander were fired over the incident.

And one Swedish advertising firm generated some pretty good publicity.
