Milk as the new weapon of social protest

Dairy farmers in Belgium are trying to go one better than union protestors in Greece with their paint bombs. They drove their tractors into Brussels for a two-day protest outside the European Parliament against that body racketeering unreasonable milk prices. Of course, weren't Greek farmers the first to introduce tractors into social protest when they recently barricaded the airport in Crete? Riot cops in full regalia defending the parliamentary gangsters got it smack in the kisser with sprayed milk. What a pity when they looked so spiffy in their battle gear!  (Photo by Geert Vanden Wijngaert/AP)
