Greenpeace action at European Parliament

On december 11th greenpeace deployed some climate slogans at the european summit in Brussels. They managed to get at the entrance with all the European presidents.
Greenpeace says all it took were some fake badges (with Greenpeace logo), business suits and a rented expensive car.
Reaction of the Brussels City Police: " If we had imagined that someone would be so stupid to do such dangerous actions, this would never have happened. Security has not failed. If people use heavy infrastructure to imitate police cars and access badges anybody can get in there."
This is what you get if you give security European security into the hands of a small city police force. Additionally in Brussels is composed of 19 municipalities and the police force is fractured over 6 regions.
