Flash mobbers take cue from TV’s FlashForward


    People all across Zurich were dropping like flies on Tuesday as part of a flash-mob protest against the proposed building of nuclear power stations in Switzerland. The action simulated what might happen if a nuclear radioactivity disaster were to occur. Plus it apparently references the recently cancelled ABC show FlashForward. Hopefully, unlike the show, it met with a stronger audience reaction.
