I thought this was one of their most tasteful and well planned protests. I have been an activist for them for years - the last protest that was well done was at the Democratic National Convention here in Los Angeles (that I attended)
I support them totally, and use my camera equipment to conduct surveillance for them on a regular basis. I spend time at regular intervals writing letters to them criticizing what they do as well, some of their tactics are really, really not just disgusting - but just wrong in terms of what they are trying to accomplish. I denouned them recently when they wanted me to attend a protest at the museum of tolerance because the organization wouldn't let them put an animal cruelty exhibit in the holocaust exhibit. That made me really mad. Before that they asked in the winter if I would help at a protest in front of a grade school handing out really scary anti-dairy leaflets to school age children - which I also thought was malicious and anti-productive.
They are ruled by their passion and I think that heat gets in the way of reason sometimes. When no one will listen to your cause, people get passionate and crazy about getting the point across somehow.
Anyway - loved this one. I thought they did a great job.
