The Great Wall of Sydney

( Or how to do a protesters job for them )

The APEC summit starts in Sydney shortly and authorities decided to act like the entire population of Sydney might be the enemy.

A FIVE-KILOMETRE, 2.8-metre fence will lock up sections of the CBD during the Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation summit next month. Sydneysiders will face the greatest dislocation since the 2000 Olympics.
Pedestrians may need identification to cross some streets. The Cahill Expressway off-ramp to Macquarie Street will be closed from Tuesday, September 4 until Monday, September 10, adding to the transport chaos that the summit will cause.

A few more headlines about it. I'm so happy I'm not in Sydney right now.
