Toy Story

Russian authorities in Siberia have banned a demonstration by toys, arguing that toys are not citizens and therefore have no right to demonstrate. Interesting that the real citizens are so scared to demonstrate that they have to use their toys as avatars.

What, I wonder, would have been the position had they been pro-Putin toys? I can understand why protesters might wish to use proxies, though - I was in Moscow last weekend and the temperature didn't get above minus 20. I wouldn't like to be standing around in Bolotnaya Square for long like that - I couldn't even manage a decent morning run.
