An infamous television-bashing demonstration
On March 11, 2000, the movement, "Soyuz 2000" created a stir in Moscow with an infamous television-bashing demonstration in front of the central statue of Karl Marx. Several young demonstrators lifted two vintage Soviet "televiziori" representing the two big Russian TV channels, ORT and RTR, and heaved them against the monument. A young man with a green Mohawk-hairdo briefly danced on the ruins as foreign correspondents' cameras whirred.
