Terracotta Army Protest
Yesterday, self-professed "eco warrior" Martin Wyness hopped over barriers in the British Museum and put "CO2" face masks on a pair of those life-sized statues from the Chinese Terracotta Army which are currently on display. Security guards were alerted and turfed the twit out. He has been banned from the museum for life, but doesn't seem to have done any criminal damage and wasn't arrested. We all know that China is a filthy polluter, Martin; I think Olympic athletes coughing in the smog next year will get the point across much better than your soppy protest.
