Pioneer Square Quacking?

Did anyone witness the quacking people in Pioneer Square on Saturday evening about 7pm? There was a street preacher there as well and seemed to be involved in the quacking as well. Was this a political statement? A flash mob? A gonvernment conspiracy?

This is what I heard told as to 23.Feb.2004 12:49

why?

Regarding the demonstration, it's my understanding that these people were protesting Vera Katz and her
decision regarding the killing policeman, Scott whatshisname!

The quacking was when they were mocking her as she is a lame duck Mayor that is apparently going to end her career as a "do-nothing" politician! I laughted when I heard this, as I said, "when did she ever do anything to begin with?" This was a demonstration, that's all! Pretty funny though!

I heard through my sister's friend that the group claiming credit for the protest was a branch of the Duck Liberation Front, or DLF. They're supposedly an underground renegade group dedicated to freeing all the ducks in the city whose wings have been clipped and are stuck in parks all winter. Anyone heard about that?
