Commuters outside of Denmark's busiest train station, Nørreport, encountered a scene of a momentary confusion yesterday afternoon.
Some twenty bodies dropped to the ground simultaneously, causing an on-looker to exclaim, "Someone's been shot!"
Things quickly became much clearer, however, when another group of people donning masks of the face of former PM, and current NATO leader, Anders Fogh Rasmussen arrived on the scene and started handing out flyers to the confused crowd.
The whole thing only lasted two minutes, a symbolic amount of time with each second representing one thousand civilian deaths during the Iraq War.
The happening was carried out by a group of young young Enhedslisten (EL) activists to mark the tenth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq.
"No-one has yet to be held responsible for this war of aggression," Gorm Gunnarsen, a spokesperson for EL's international committee, said. "The war has led to the killing of tens of thousands of people and caused millions of others to flee the country. The Bush administration's claims of weapons of mass destruction in 2003 were unsubstantiated. Danish politicians entered the war with open eyes. Blind loyalty to a superpower is not an extenuating circumstance. As a small country, Denmark should have been like its closest neighbours and stayed out of Iraq."
