The problem with bizarre protests like this are that people pay more attention to the spectacle the protesters make than to the problem itself

The majority of shark meat are tougher than most seafood out there. I seriously think a lot of people eat shark just to eat shark.

This reminds me of something I saw on TV. People do this for FUN.
You know, those piercing obsessed people who want to "Experiment" with their bodies?

Yeah, they're called Taboo, I was watching a similar show. Apparently lots of people do this, like you said, for fun. It was in HD, so I could clearly see the skin when they poked the fish hooks in. The people who've done it say it doesn't hurt that much.

Alice Newstead, an artist and animal rights activist, painted herself silver before spearing the skin of her shoulderblades with oversized shark fishing hooks. Then, resting her feet in a harness, she was hoisted up into the air.

She spent 15 minutes suspended in the window of a Lush Cosmetics store in the south of the capital, as passers-by walked along the busy boulevard, her skin stretched upward and streaked with blood. The cosmetics company has linked up with the Sea Shepherd environmental organisation to campaign against overfishing, which is threatening sharks with extinction.

Some 100 million sharks are caught in commercial and sports fishing every year, and several species have declined by more than 80 per ent in the past decade alone, according to the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW)

Sought after for their meat, fins, cartilage and oil, a third of all open water sharks - including the great white and hammerhead - face extinction, according to a major conservation survey released last week.

Collapsing shark populations have already severely disrupted at least two coastal marine ecosystems, marine biologists have said.

That's downright ridiculous! My fellow europeans just have to much time. I doubt anyone would stop eating shark, just because a stupid dumbass mutilates herself in Paris.


They use shark meat in producing fish balls

I guess from now on I'll consume fish balls, just to piss the attention whores and freaks off.

The whole environment movement, PETA, Greenpeace, this Seashepard thing here, ... is only to make money. Same goes for third world development beggars.

A whole species can't become extinct by commercial fishing. The prices for that fish would sky rocket and noone would buy them anymore.

Holy shit... she got my vote for whatever "Save shark" rally she's going for.
This is the equivalent of Bush volunteering to go into the Iraq War to fight during his presidency.
