Heiligendamm, Germany - Protesters successfully blocked all roads leading to the G8 summit where the heads of state of some of the eight most powerful nations are meeting in a closed door session this week. Many of their aides had to be flown in by helicopter after the roads were made impassable by decentralized groups of primarily anti-capitalist demonstrators determined to disrupt the meeting in protest.

Saturday in Rostock

Police used water cannons and pepper spray against protesters who breached the more than seven-mile long security fence topped with razor wire. Some demonstrators hurled rocks and other projectiles at police, but caused far less damage than they did during Saturday's protest in Rostock.
