Danish group dumps poo on ministry steps

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, March 5 (UPI) -- A Danish group called Dissatisfied Unemployed has taken responsibility for dumping more than 220 pounds of manure on the front steps of the Employment Ministry.

The group said it dumped the manure, and a sign loosely translating to "thanks for crap," on the ministry's front steps early Monday morning in reaction to the government "breaking all of its promises of improvements for the unemployed," The Copenhagen Post reported Tuesday.

A participant in the stunt, who gave his name only as Preben, said members were most upset by changes made to the dagpenge unemployment benefit system.

"Thousands of people risk losing house and home," Preben said. "In January alone, 5,000 people fell out of the dagpenge system and the only thing [the employment minister] Mette Frederiksen has to offer those affected is hot air and empty talk."
