Protests That Turned Heads

If you want the world to listen to your cause, shouting just won't work.  You have to get weird.  That's what Alice Newstead did last summer to raise awareness about shark endangerment.  With oversized fish hooks, a Paris boutique, and silver spray paint, Alice hung around briefly, but it got people's attention.

The painful stunt went on for 15 minutes, as shoppers came to have a gander at the weird protest in the window of cosmetics store Lush. According to the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) some 100 million sharks are caught in commercial and sports fishing every year, and several species have declined by more than 80 per cent in the past decade alone.

Oddee has nine other strange protests we have been subjected to... and took notice of.
