G20 protests in pictures

April 2nd, 2009 · post by anon · 1 Comment

Tens of thousands of protesters converged on London on April 1st 2009 to protest against the G20 summit.

Protesters from a diverse range of campaigns and backgrounds including anti-capitalist, environmental, anti-war and anarchist groups took part in heavily policed demonstrations across the city.

At the Bank of England thousands of people gathered to take part in an event that featured clashes with the police thought-out the day. Below is a short picture report from the day. Much more coming soon. A longer photo report over is here on Last Hours.

    Many conservative and libertarian Americans agree with the G20 protests.

    While most of the London and European protesters are from the far left, many working Americans feel the same about Washington’s excessive bailouts for Wall Street and the banking establishment. Washington has bailed out the banks, Wall Street & their Washington special interests and much of the cost is added to the national debt to by paid by this and future generations while real estate and investments continue to fall.

    Find out how a growing repudiate the debt movement could stop Washington’s deficits, the exploding national debt and end the bailouts.
