Oh waah!
Greenpeace loon Antony Perrett complained he was forced to liv on bread and water because the Russians would not serve him vegetarian meals in prison.
The Daily Mail reported:

A Greenpeace campaigner claims he was forced to live on bread and water while being held in a Russian prison because it didn’t offer a vegetarian alternative.

Antony Perrett arrived home yesterday after spending two months in prisons in Murmansk and St Petersburg for trying to hang a climate change banner on an oil rig.

The former town councillor is one a group of environmental activists known as the Arctic 30 who were being held in Russia on hooliganism charges.

Since being released under a new amnesty law, the 33-year-old has revealed he refused to eat some of the food offered to him behind bars.

‘All the prison food had low grade meat of unknown origin in it. I’m a vegetarian and I lost a lot of weight,’ he said from his home in Newport, South Wales.

Perrett said he passed his time in the rodent-infested jails by doing drawings with paper and pencils sent in a Greenpeace parcel, and communicating with other prisoners by whistling.
