Security zones

When NATO meets in Strasbourg, the city will be turned into a military fortress, with up to 25,000 police protecting the NATO summit, and effectively leaving no space for democratic protest.


At the time of going to press, the exact locations of security zones in Strasbourg were not yet known.

However, it is clear that:

► there will at least be two security zones: the neighbourhood around the Palais de Musique et de Congres / Wacken and the cathedral / Palais Rohan

► Until 3 and 4 April, other security zones might emerge

► The Lycee Kleber will be completely closed on 3 and 4 April

► the markets will be closed

With these security zones, there is little space left for democratic protest.

A map of Strasbourg (based on openstreepmap.org) with the summit venues is available at http://wri-irg.org/system/files/public_files/br81-en-spread.png (8.8MB).

So why don't you care about the license regarding the map?
Or is "good" only what suits you?

This message sounds a bit harsh. You probably only want to inform the creator that he should place a message "Map by OpenStreetMap" somewhere.

That's right, sorry for that.

Done

Sorry for omitting the source. It has been fixed in the html, and will be fixed in the graphics itself soon.

We very much value openstreetmap.org, and that's why we use it. No harm intended.
