What a riot

They are pretty hard core over there. Recently, their government outlawed ALL public wearing of helmets:

Heavy jail sentences were imposed for participation in "mass disorder" and the wearing of face-masks or protective helmets. Dissemination of "extremist" or libellous information about the country's leaders was outlawed.

In a gesture of scorn for the helmet ban, many protesters on Sunday wore saucepans and colanders on their heads.

Funny how in our "safety obsessed" culture in the US, I've never seen a political protester wear a helmet, even a motorcycle helmet. Masks, but no helmets.
