You can't march with em, you can't march without looking like em.
Some 200 Greenpeace protesters in penguin costumes protested Thursday to demand that the national government deter loggers and farmers from destroying Argentina's native forests.
The peaceful protesters lined up outside Government House on one of the last cold days of the southern hemisphere winter as police kept them behind a cordon.
Greenpeace activists said they wore the penguin masks and black tie outfits as an attention-getting stunt because Argentina's president, Nestor Kirchner, hails from the wind-swept southern Patagonia region teeming with penguins.
Kirchner himself has at times jokingly referred to himself by the "penguin" nickname many have given him. Visiting New York for the United Nations General Assembly, he had no comment on the protest.
See ya'll at Stetson's tonight.
