These protests are global.  A reminder of that are the resistance camps set up by activists in Strasbourg, France.  Strasbourg is one of the NATO summit sites.

This sure has been a busy week: the G20 summit, another Greek General Strike, and the Anti-NATO protests among others.

Well, more busy than I thought.  The People's Weekly World reports 2.7 million marched through the streets of Rome on the weekend.  Protests in New York and Chicago as well.

it's in Italian, but the images say it all.
