Tiny Robot is glad he wasn’t there

Presented without comment, via Boing Boing and Reuters:

A protest action by a group of Singaporeans with Japanese anime figurines such as the 5-inch tall Ultraman, robots and monsters with placards met some real-life police in the city-state.

A handful of fans of Japanese anime had turned up at a Singapore public park on August 25th with armfuls of the toys to protest against a clampdown on Internet downloading of anime material by Singapore animation distributor Odex.

[An organiser] added that police – who had four anti-riot vans at the scene – also took down the anime fans’ particulars and that they were filmed by plainclothes policemen. A police spokeswoman said she could not immediately comment.
