Yes! White violins that say "The Whitewash Apartheid Orchestra!" I love them! Makes you think about the message behind the Mahler. Seems like extra security measures might have been quite unnecessary (although PETA might have wanted to pour some red paint on all those fur coats). Looks like a spirited, creative protest!


I was personally a big fan of "Justice-- Presto, not Lento" and the chant "I love Gustav, I love Mahler, But Occupation Makes Us Holler."

I assume these folks will also protest the whites-only, 98% male VPO when they come to town?


I wouldn't imagine that these precise protesters will be out picketing the Vienna Philharmonic, given how specific their targets were, but someone always does.
