Clowns force closure of the G8 (probably).

03-06-2007 16:51

It is now confirmed that the clown infection has spread as far as Germany. Following the first recorded outbreak in London in 2003 it was thought that the spread had been contained. Now it seems that the condition is reaching epidemic proportions will little or no indication as to where it will end. It is thought that the disease has become airborne due to activists traveling to summit mobilisations on budget airlines. “Many of them don’t even know they are carriers” said one expert who declined to be named.

Fortunately following the outbreak of the Samba virus a few years ago there are now many safeguards in place to protect the movement from this phenomenon. Symptoms of the illness are easy to spot and following treatment victims can make a full recovery. It remains unclear whether activists will in time develop immunity to the condition. People are being advised not to panic as the situation is being closely monitored.

G8 Protest Ban Exclusion Zone Re-imposed

01-06-2007 14:42

The highest court in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern has overruled the previous court decision and decided that a general demonstration ban on June 7th did not violate the constitutional rights of protesters.

A general injunction over a 40 square kilometre area had been designated by police as a demonstration-free zone due to a "state of emergency". It went well beyond the original 200m exclusion zone around the fence stretching to 6km in places.

As a result of this the so-called Star March on June 7th , which was intending to go all the way to the Kempinski hotel, will now be confined to the B105 road.
