Looks like a Roman legion vs the barbarians, which in a sense it is. Thanks for the clip, always great to see something that I've only read about.
Japanese or Korean..I think it is the annual may day celebration or riot.
They are not Barbarians... merely criminals to the State.
Interesting the barbarians did not go for the flanks instead of going up the middle when the video fist started.Heltau
I think it was a training exercise where the "protesters" did exactly what they were supposed to do and no more or less.
In the real thing the protestors tend to use gasoline bombs. Interesting that at the end the phalanx cut off two vigorous protesters in the lower right. What would happen to them once surrounded was not on camera.
