In this photo taken on Monday, Oct. 8, 2012, a woman walks by election campaign posters in Antwerp, Belgium. Historic world port and hip fashionista capital, Antwerp has always lived on the crest of the wave. Now, a separatist Fleming is seeking to make the city his own on Sunday and use it as a base for breaking away from Belgium. Local elections will take place on Sunday, Oct. 14, 2012. Poster reads on second right, 'Vote Blank and annul the election'. (AP Photo/Virginia Mayo)
