CHINA PROTEST FAIL

DEAR CHINA,

YOU SUCK AT PROTESTING.

As seen outside the very still going ahead "10 Conditions of Love" screening:

China Protest Fail
Two people yelling does not equal a protest. Notice how they are surrounded by media
 
China Protest 1
The placards from the single protestor were pushed over by someone from the line to save them from further embarassment.

What did hacking the MIFF festival website/ticketing system and hassling their offices actually achieve?

Did if stop them from screening the film? No.

Did it get over 1500 people to see it in the Melbourne Town Hall and the documentary world wide press? Yes.
