N29 Weird Standoff

Slowing down to watch long takes is how you can really get a feel for what it was like on the streets during the WTO protests. This was Monday, the day before the WTO meetings were supposed to start. There were actions all over town and it was the first time the police dispalyed their new, sci-fi uniforms. People were.. laughing, in a bit of shock and creeped out.
