Singapore police raid protest held by 5-inch plastic dolls

200709100615Anime fans in Singapore staged a micro-sized protest against a Singapore animation distributor by attaching tiny signs to plastic robot and monster statuettes and placing them in public.

The Singapore authorities responded by sending four riot vans. The organizer of the protest, Zer0 told reporters that the police removed the figurines and that plainclothes officers filmed them.

According to the Yahoo News brief, "public protests are rare in Singapore, where outdoor demonstrations are banned and any public gathering of more than four people requires a permit."
