bums not Bush

Ever since reading this I've been looking forward to the APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation) summit in Sydney:
A game group of Australian anti-war protesters are planning a cheeky protest against a visit by US President George W. Bush -- baring their bottoms in what they hope will be a world-record moon.

Organiser Will Saunders said the Friday protest was aimed at lightening the mood in Sydney, a city currently patrolled by 5,000 police and soldiers and divided by a massive steel and concrete fence ahead of the APEC summit.

In a leaflet to possible supporters, the group calls for 4,000 cheeks -- er, 2,000 people -- to "tell Bush what we really think about his visit."

Saunders said numbers for the protest were not yet certain but he had a core group to perform a "21 Bum Salute" to represent each of the countries in the grouping.

As you surely understand, I've been searching for pictures of this event, and so far I have found this video and this one:

From now on I'll never be able to keep a straight face at the mention of the Pacific Rim...
