They call themselves S.E.A.L.S. (a duth acronym for Militant Ecological
Anarchist Human Shield). They are a group of activists who want to break
through police lines during demonstrations and actions, armed with shields
and helmets. This way they want to provoke police violence and mobilize
public opinion. They consider themselves non-violent. The photo was made
when they were in training, dressed in white overalls, helmets with white
imitation fur and cuddly toys. The shields were once G.D.R. riot police
Look for them on your TV screen during the next G7 or world trade summit.
