Kiwi Politician Gets Dildo Thrown in Face

"That's for raping our sovereignty!" exclaimed the protester as she threw a dildo in the face of Steven Joyce, a member of New Zealand's Parliament on February 4th, 2016. Josie Butler is a nurse and was driven to this direct act of protest by her feelings that the Trans Pacific Partnership (aka TPP) trade agreement would be detrimental to working people throughout the pacific islands. We at Tom Paine's ghost do not condone violence but think this was pretty damned funny and brings attention to this bullshit agreement that only benefits corporations! Plus, a dildo is so much more metaphorical than a shoe.
