    Really interesting post. This makes me think of Small Acts of Resistance (written by Steve Crawshaw, who I had the pleasure of working with at Human Rights Watch and is now at Amnesty), which shows that these strange protests can help create change. The book has a lot of fascinating examples – my favorite might be the Burmese dressing in punk clothing in response to the junta’s order to dress conservatively – pic here: http://www.smallactsofresistance.com/

    Thanks. I’ll have to read Small Acts of Resistance. I wonder about the efficacy of a lot of these displays. But as I argue in my book, efficacy in terms of substantial social or political change is not the only benefit associated with public dislplays.
