Genoa 2001: NO G8
Originally uploaded by han Soete.
July 2001: More than 250.000 people gathered that summer in Genoa. To protest globalization and more in particular the G8 meeting that took place in city of Genoa. The city center was turned into a fortress by Italian police and armed forces: The Red zone. Thousands of protesters tried to get in the red-zone as they thought the G8 meeting is a totalitarian event with no democratic representation at all.
The Italian police and armed forces responded in the most brutal way, with 1 youngster killed as a result.
