About a dozen political protestors raised their voices Thursday in downtown Charlottetown for an anti-Stephen Harper singing session.

The group was singing Harperman, a tune that pokes fun at Conservative Leader Stephen Harper and criticizes many of his policy decisions.

Penned by now-suspended federal civil servant and Ottawa-area singer-songwriter Tony Turner, the song went viral on YouTube and other social media platforms earlier this month.

"People learn a lot by fun. Not necessarily people hammering at them about things, but just really fun," said protestor Irene Doyle.

"Fun things really brings it into your mind and makes you ponder."

Harperman gatherings were hosted in cities across Canada Thursday.
