As previously discussed, yesterday in Frankfurt an activist named Josephine Witt expressed her frustration with European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi by bum-rushing the desk he was sitting behind during a talk on monetary policy, jumping on top of it, and throwing a bunch of glitter in his face. Today, she told reporters just how thrilling the glitter bombing was-- an experience not to be missed.

"The picture of Mario Draghi’s face was priceless – he was scared, surprised and shaken, and gone was the big poker-faced banker – it was suddenly just an ordinary man there in front of me," she said.

Truly, there's nothing like it. She highly suggests everyone give it a try.

Earlier today, we were told that Brian Moynihan's speech at the Citi Financial Services was interrupted by several protesters chanting "bust up Bank of America before it busts up America." One did so running down the aisles, one jumped onto the stage and grabbed the mic from Moynihan, and one "jumped on a table in front of the stage and pulled off her top to show the slogan written across her chest," before being escorted out. Some of, as is your wont, requested photos. Here you go.
