Clown Army engages war profiteers: 20 arrests

`More than 70 people took part in an action organised against the Weapons Defence Industry Association conference held at Te Papa in New Zealand on Tuesday. The action, which was organised by Peace Action Wellington, involved a large sit-in/blockade by the Aotearoa Revolutionary Clown Army in front of Te Papa which lasted for about two and a half hours, and also a blockade in front of an armoured vehicle. Twenty people in all were arrested, with charges ranging from obstruction, trespass and assault of police officers.’
