    Well, they have to put the balls somewhere, making the city open new dumps.

    But yeah... I don`t really like the logic. "We have no more room to put environment-destroying trash in the ground. Let`s make a whole bunch of new trash to force people to put more trash into the ground." How long do you think it will take for one of those balls to decompose, anyway? 1000 years?

    I think he did it to make the authorities come out and clear them up...like if they`re not clearing up their rubbish, they`ll be clearing up balls instead.
    There HAS to be some logic in there SOMEWHERE...

    Nicely played. xD

    And yeah. I think his point was to make a big enough mess to FORCE the government to clean it up since they weren`t before. And the balls are a lot less gross and smelly than garbage!

    1. that`s rome, not naples. why would you protest in another city altogether?

    2. way to make MORE garbage for the landfill.

    3. not nearly as cool as the superballs in San Francisco.

    So let`s recap... A guy is frustrated because there`s too much garbage in his coutry and he protest against this by dumping millions of plastic balls that are going to end up in the garbage... that`s like very creative and all but I fail to see how it`s going to help the case.

    I bet the garbage are full because of that guy alone.
