Lego Men to the Rescue in Russian Protests!

Lego figurines, Kinder surprises and other toys played the role of 'demonstrators'.

  What is the quote about building a better mousetrap? Well, protestors in Russia have taken innovation to a new level and police aren't happy. The protestors in the photo above are were declared "unsanctioned" and are currently in police custody in Barnaul, Siberia. 
  The tiny protestors (complete with placards) were displayed on January 26th, since authorities have repeatedly rejected requests to protest the parliamentary election results. Protest signs read,"I'm for clean elections" and "A thief should sit in jail, not in the Kremlin".  Police are trying to contain the doll protests, one wonder how do you contain a doll that is only 5cm high? 
   "Run, run as fast as you can, you can't catch me, I'm the Lego Protest Man" and "My name is Kinder Toy and I don't like you very much" come to mind as how the tiny toys would answer the police.
