Nato Summit – No Borders Action

Strasbourg. No Borders action.

After clearing the obstacles at the Vaubaun bridge activists headed for the border with Germany. 5,000 protesters were trapped on the other side by the authorities despite this being a Europe without borders.

You got that?

Lots of German riot cops erect their own border.

Nearby the majority of the demonstrators were attending a peaceful rally. It was almost surreal watching speeches by the French Left while thick black smoke billowed up from behind the stage. The cops made no effort to protect the border point which became the seconfd biggest bonfire of the whole event.
