We Are The People - Suck On This

Video (4:30mins) with photographs and a signed petition.

A manically grinning Travis Bickle (Taxi Driver) lookalike stalks the streets of central London searching for suitable prey. His mohican is a crudely self inflicted affair.

He pops pill after pill and circles around Downing Street and Buckingham Palace. He gains access to Downing Street and hands in a petition addressed to Tony Blair. The petition states We Are The People - Suck On This and is signed only by the two artists.

The police lead him away.
