Now this is what you call taking protesting to the next level.
Via The Metro
A man was arrested after stripping naked and nailing his own testicles to the ground in broad daylight and in full view of tourists at one of the world’s most visited landmarks.
Self-styled performance artist Pyotr Pavlensky received treatment at a clinic before being taken to a police station following the incident, which he said was a protest against Russia’s ‘police state’.
He shocked visitors in Moscow’s Red Square by hammering a nail through his scrotum into cobblestones outside Lenin’s Mausoleum, on the day Russia marked its Police Day national holiday.
At least one person filmed Mr Pavlensky during the protest before police put a blanket on him and removed him from the floor.
Well this will be a holiday that those tourists won’t be able to forget in a hurry.
