Description: Anti globalisation demonstration in Prague at international meeting with IMF , World Bank & major industrial nations Sept 26 2000 . Giovanni , Italy , Bank employee ( 38 ) , Picture taken during S26 . " I look like the man from Michelin tires , hahaha ! Yes , we Italians re invented the art of peaceful activism . We cover ourselves up in foam , wear helmets and crash into the riot police . Its all completely peaceful ! Dont I look completely ridiculous ! Sometimes they beat us up very hard , though . Not this time I hope . In two days I have to work again in a local bank . Im against globalisation and the IMF and all , but just like everybody else I need to make money . My boss knows what Im doing . Everybody is entitled to his own opinion , he says . Right ! My opinion is less power for big corporations and down with Big Money . Thats why we are called Ya basta ! , Its enough ! By running fearless into the police lines we show our determination . Nevertheless Im scared to get wounded , but my wife is more afraid . " Giovanni , watch out ! , she tells me every day on the phone . I will , but Ill be up front .
