Protestors in Kiev build makeshift cannon that fires potatoes to combat the riot police in the area.
They use various types of pipe to build the cannons, and different aerosols as a propellant. They claim the potatoes fly at speeds fast enough to be life threatening.
Apparently they can modify them to fire all types of different materials when they need to.
One of the protestors said that potatoes are “heavy and they fly beautifully” and another said that “I think we will probably make packets with, my apologies, shit inside. Then we’ll present this to bad people who take up arms against civilians.”
