The lighter side of militant protests...

The Unexpected Riot

Just for Laughs Gags (hidden camera show) from Canada.

This was actually filmed a number of years ago, but would be even funnier if filmed today: it takes place in Montreal, where a student uprising has been underway since mid-February of 2012, and which prominently features a red square as solidarity symbol. Many participants and ordinary people showing their support have been wearing small red squares of fabric affixed to their clothes or hats, red squares feature in much grafitti, and red square flags (much like the one in the video) are waved at many of the protest marches.
