35,000 protest G20 in London



An estimated 35,000 protested the G20 Wednesday afternoon in London for a several hour long march.

According to the German Press Agency, "Angry protestors shouting "shame on you" and "storm the banks" were involved in minor skirmishes with the police outside the Bank of England during anti-globalisation demonstrations.

"Several hundred demonstrators attempted to break through barriers to reach the heavily-guarded and boarded-up bank building, but were held back by police.

"One protest group, calling itself G20 Meltdown, staged "carnival parades" into the City led by effigies of the "four horsemen of the apocalypse" representing war, climate chaos, financial crimes and land enclosures."
