Strasbourg is a short reportage and impression from an Against NATO protest in Strasbourg, France, 2009. The demonstration quickly got out of control and while the police surrounded the area where the event took place, protesters took advantage of this vacuum like situation and demonstrated their anger by burning buildings and setting up blockades. As the police slowly commenced towards the area, they responded with huge violence.
