Around 25 activists blocked the main entrance of the Danish parliament with barbed wire yesterday (26 March) to protest against the Schengen agreement.
The activists blocked the main stairway and made it impossible for people to enter and leave the Christiansborg legislature building in Copenhagen, reported the Danish Broadcasting Corporation. Police apparently acted quickly as Danish Queen Margrethe II was due to hold an audience there.
In related news, Danish anti-EU and nationalist groups demonstrated at the control posts along the Danish-German border on 25 March following the official opening of borders between the Nordic countries and the EU states under the Schengen accord.
