Oxfam’s Lame Duck Demonstration

Nov. 14, 2012, 10:05 a.m.

On the heels of its new ad en­cour­aging law­makers not to “duck fisc­al real­ity,” Ox­fam Amer­ica — the in­ter­na­tion­al re­lief and de­vel­op­ment or­gan­iz­a­tion — took to Cap­it­ol Hill to protest budget cuts to for­eign aid. 

The group brought a gi­ant in­flat­able rub­ber duck­ie, re­sem­bling the one from its ad, and set up on the lawn in front of the Cap­it­ol Build­ing. Sev­er­al of the pro­test­ers donned com­ic­ally large card­bord cutout faces of vari­ous Con­gre­sion­al lead­ers and danced around the lame duck duck­ie.
