Evolo Condos in Montreal
Wired comes to Montreal for a demo and interviews Anarchopanda.
Clément and Kate are discussing. Toggle Comments
“The panda is an anarchist, and in Quebec, everything we are doing right now – including hugging an anarchist panda in a crowded street – is illegal.”
No matter where you stand on the issue, I’m tired of news reports which are factually incorrect.
@Kate: It wasn’t a comment on your post. You just linked to it and made a neutral comment. You did fine as far as I’m concerned.
No my issue is with the media (on either side) getting their story from only one source and not bothering to check. Trust me, when the National Post reports on Sangria drinking students, I’m just as annoyed.
I actually subscribe to Wired (both in print and online), so I guess it disappoints me ever more. I expect biased news from the National Post or JdM or LCN, but not from “not-so-traditional” media.
It’s a Wired story, but if Wired writes about our demonstrations that in itself becomes news.
By the way, I thought that intro was an oblique way of saying that the demonstration had been declared illegal under Bill 78 so everything being done at that point was technically illegal. A bit silly, but possibly technically true?
@Kate: Yes, I would guess that’s probably their thinking. Since the demo is illegal, then being there is technically illegal.
But then again, hugging a furry mascot is as legal or illegal as breathing, talking on the phone or drinking water. I understand their reasoning, their position, but saying that the specific act of hugging a panda is illegal is a bit dishonest.
