Calgary Pillow Fight interview

Calgary Pillow Fight interview

Someone who showed up for the pillow fight is interviewed by reporter Katie Schneider. She wrote for the Calgary Sun about the pillow fight in "Pillow case hits street" and the unrelated anti-war demonstration (not seen here) at the same place and time in "Protesters decry Afghan war".

A public pillow fight was planned for Tomkins Park (17 Avenue and 8 Street SW) in Calgary on Saturday, April 4, 2009 (International Pillow Fight Day). The City found out and warned organizers that they had to get a permit or they would be fined and/or arrested. So, officially it was cancelled, but some people showed up anyhow, and generally kept the "fight" to the side walk. There was a signficant police and bylaw officer presence, but they seemed to sit back, and let a small number of people do a little pillow fighting, without incident.
