Panda mascotte arrested by Montreal police during protest
Since the beginning of the local arm-wrestling match between students protesting the announced raise in scolarity fees, police trying to keep the protests calm, and the provincial government holding their own to save face “against a bunch of wet-behind-the-ears kids”, a university psychology teacher, dressed like a giant panda was present to nearly all the protest walks.
Last week however, Montreal adopted a new by-law making it illegal to walk in a protest while wearing a mask, hence the giant panda dude was arrested yesterday as soon as he showed up at the walk.
Sadly, I couldn’t find a a photo of the handcuffed giant panda, so we’ll just have to settle for a picture of it walking a protest, last week.
Bye bye panda, bye bye and remember, whatever you do in jail, don’t pick up the soap.
