In a funny but disturbing display of hostility, Grafton Centre security guards under the watchful eyes of mall managers grabbed anti-sweatshop literature out of the hands of mild-mannered protesters, forbid the use of video and still cameras, and triumphantly dismantled the sinister May Day picnic apparatus inside the mall. A potentially violent mob which was handing out pink "No To Child Labour" balloons to passing children was also suppressed with ruthless effectiveness.
Picnic 1 [Can I see your papers?]
The Grafton Grapple
This one's from Dublin but it's cool anyway
Who are you consuming?
Subversive Balloon Stopped in the Nick of Time
By about 1:45, the picnic was happily set up outside the main entrance to the Grafton Centre beside the Cooperative Bank, under the watchful eyes of the combined mall/police security forces. The demonstration, which included juggling, dancing, free food, people reading books, and other non-shopping activities, was finally vanquished by 3:00 pm GMT.
