Activists stop Russian G 8 delegates and bash their car

At the West Gate of the G8 summit a car carrying Russian delegates attempted to pass protesters. It was blockaded and damage was inflicted to the car.
First the car was blocked then people attempted to disable it. The wheels were deflated and exhaust was broken. Activists then opened the boot and removed the belongings of the delegate, just as the G8 removes the freedom and lives of those it claims to represent. Once the boot was open the car drove into people resulting in the windows of the car being smashed.
