Russian media highlights McDonald’s ’bombing raid’

This week a number of passers by and a group of school students joined in the protest. Amazingly TV cameras that had come in response to a promise by the protesters to organise "an event" outside McDonalds surrounded the square. After anti-war speeches were made over a hundred youth, all armed with paper aeroplanes, organised a ’bombing raid’ on the restaurant. That evening all of the main news programmes covered the protest, as did several papers. The next protest is planned for the 19 April – a march along the "Axis of evil" – from the British to the US Embassy.
