DC Peta Protest

Thanks to Flickr User DrBrian for this great shot of four topless women and one guy in a speedo. PETA was out protesting at the Australian Embassy this weekend, protesting an Australian Sheep Shearing Practice called Mulesing.

I’m not entirely convinced that five mostly naked people and two posters are what it’s going to take to do anything except attract perverts to future PETA protests.

But hey, there’s always the People for the Eating of Tasty Animals

Of course I didn’t bother to read the EXIF data on the flickr photo, this protest actually happened last September, causing me to feel like a giant jackass for just noticing them in the DC tagstream on Flickr. Nothing to see here, move along, move along…

    Cool photos, but note that they were actually taken last September — they just weren’t posted on flickr until this weekend.

    Thanks Grundle, I’d missed that entirely. Updated in the entry now.
