Protesting figurines

"Police in the Siberian city of Barnaul have asked prosecutors to investigate the legality of a recent protest that saw dozens of small dolls… arranged to mimic a protest…. Activists set up the display after authorities repeatedly rejected their request to hold a sanctioned demonstration of the kind held in Moscow to protest disputed parliamentary elections results."

  • All Work and No Play Make the Baining the "Dullest Culture on Earth" | Psychology Today
    ‘The Baining eschew everything that they see as “natural” and value activities and products that come from “work”… Work, to them, is effort expended to overcome or resist the natural. To behave naturally is to them tantamount to behaving as an animal…. The Baining believe, quite correctly, that play is the natural activity of children, and precisely for that reason they do what they can to discourage or prevent it.’
