Media activist Farvartish Rezvanieh protested the inactivity of the Iranian officials in fighting the spread of Swine Flu.  In a symbolic gesture, Farvartish wore an H1N1 bunny suite and walked in the streets of Tehran in order to bring public awareness about this deadly virus.  In response, one of the officials of the Health Ministry called Farvartish's move useless and said he should be sent to a mental hospital!
