G8 demonstration in Lausanne

More pictures here (not from me, I stayed home, busy photographing the puppies).

The demonstration went ok, the demonstrators (is that the right word?) had their own police who were able to keep order and avoid damage to private properties. Kudos to them!

This picture shows the gigantic metal wall that has been setup just to protect a small area at the lake, apparently where the helis are going to land when the various presidents and bigwigs arrive.

Obviously the question that comes to mind is wouldn't a videoconference be cheaper;-)
