Painting Truth To Power

Ooh, that is interesting. By covering themselves in paint, members of Occupy Frankfurt effectively inverted the crowd control technique where police use dye cannons to disperse protesters–and to tag them for easier identification and roundup later. Nice to see that painting’s only detained, not dead. I wonder if this kind of painting project happens every May?
