Independent – Comedians lead protests at Sydney gathering of world leaders: As leaders of the Apec nations, which include China, Japan and Russia, prepared to hold their annual summit this weekend, several demonstrations were staged. In Hyde Park, in Sydney city centre, dozens of people held a “Bums for Bush” protest, baring their bottoms in unison. They also performed a “21 Bum Salute” to the 21 member nations, with their bottoms spelling out the words “Bums not Bombs”. After rain dispersed the protesters, they spilled on to the nearby street, where they held up an official motorcade. Scuffles broke out as police pushed the demonstrators – carrying placards that stated “Sign Kyoto, you wankers” – out of the way.
