As you may have heard, earlier today, an activist named Josephine Witt expressed her frustration with ECB President 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. Is she finished here? No, no she is not. Should Draghi's peers be worried they could be next? Hell yes, they should. She's made a list and she doesn't even need to check it twice, because it's all up here [gestures to head].
Witt said she spent about 2 1/2 hours in police custody before being released, and doesn’t know if the ECB plans to press charges. “Obviously I have my little list in my head of personalities that I think deserve no rest and deserve an attack,” she said. “Draghi surely was on that list. I have done a lot of protests in the past. I am sure I’ll continue.”
Everybody's be warned, nobody should act surprised.
