Frightening Flash Mob

A Swiss flash mob protest of nuclear power plants, which involved hundreds of people suddenly collapsing in the street (to mimic the physical ramifications of a nuclear meltdown), managed to scare the shit out of passers-by who were not in on the happening. Powerful message though.

Shoppers and office workers in Zurich were left part bemused, part terrified when hundreds of people instantly collapsed to the floor. All across the city green demonstrators simulated dropping down dead at exactly 12.15pm yesterday – to protest about a series of proposed nuclear power stations. The campaigners say their action simulated a nuclear radioactivity disaster which could happen in Switzerland, if the stations are built.
