Heilingendamm: visit to site of G8 2007

Demonstrators visited the Kempinski Hotel complex where the G8 Summit will be meeting in June 2007.

On Friday August 11 2006, several hundred demonstrators, including clowns and a samba band, visited the Kempinski Hotel complex in Heilingendamm, North-Eastern Germany, where the G8 Summit - leaders of the world's richest eight nations - will be meeting in June 2007.
They hung banners on an empty building adjacent to the hotel, and generally made their presence felt at the seaside resort, which faces the Ost or Baltic Sea.
Hotel security tried, unsuccesfully, to deter them from dancing/walking on the hotel's lawns until helmeted police in crowd-control uniforms formed a ring around the hotel grounds.
There were no arrests, apart from a number of people who took part in a water action in the sea.
