Signs of the Advent Apocalypse - Part 6 - Santarchy

Welcome to the Santarchy, a movement that apparently involves getting drunk and causing disruptive behavior while dressed up as Santa Claus - all in the name of "protesting the commercialization of Christmas". Yeah, right.

The rampage, dubbed "Santarchy," began early Saturday afternoon when the men, wearing ill-fitting Santa costumes, threw beer bottles and urinated on cars from an overpass, said Auckland Central Police spokesman Noreen Hegarty.

She said the men then rushed through a central city park, overturning garbage containers, throwing bottles at passing cars and spraying graffiti on office buildings. [source]

Perhaps we need a new group protesting the protestors.
