    Stop ACTA demonstration storm parliament in Copenhagen

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     mikkel11 shot this photo and video today of protests outside of the Danish Parliament in Copenhagen against the controversial Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement [ACTA]. 'Many demonstrators stated that this is only the first demonstration in what they refer to as The European Spring. I was surprised to see that the majority of the demonstrators were young men between the age of 14 and 25 who'd never participated in demonstrations before,' he said. 'I'm a historian specializing in dictatorships in Central America and I deeply regret to see some of the same things happening in Europe like it did in the 80's in Central America.'
