Tactical frivolity

Tactical Frivolity is a tradition of public protest associated with "Pink Blocs," womanist and gay-themed marches that use drumming, samba, dance, radical cheerleading, clowns and fairies to create an atmosphere of festivity and humor during street protests. Participants usually wear pink and silver costumes. The first Pink Bloc was formed in the Pink/Silver line of the World Bank/IMF anti-globalization movement protest on September 26 in Prague, Czech Republic. Other Tactical Frivolity traditions include Reclaim the Streets and Carnival Against Capitalism.

Tactical Frivolity is a form of sniggling.
