    Man dies during G20 protests in London

    Day of protests that began peacefully turn sour as man dies during G20 demonstrations

    A man died last night during the G20 protests in central London as a day that began peacefully ended with police saying bottles were thrown at police medics trying to help him.

    The man had collapsed within a police cordon set up to contain the crowds who had assembled in central London and the City to protest over the G20 summit. There were 63 arrests on the day.

    The Independent Police Complaints Commission was being notified last night. Scotland Yard said the alarm had been raised by a member of the public who spoke to a police officer on a cordon at the junction of Birchin Lane and Cornhill in the City.

    A demonstrator shouts at police in riot gear during protests outside the Bank of England in London



    Riot police staged baton charges to try to disperse several hundred protesters gathered around the Bank of England in the heart of London's financial centre on Wednesday after a day of protest around the G20 summit



    Demonstrators clashed with riot police and smashed bank windows in Britain's financial centre on Wednesday ahead of a G20 meeting in protest against a system they said had robbed the poor to benefit the rich

    Why is it geneally assumed these protestors are innocent of the beatings they sometimes receive at the hand of police? I'm sure some of these people asked for it. Not all protestors are of the non-violent persuasion.

    I was there and i agree, a tiny tiny minority of protestors were 'asking for it' but i saw police kicking and hitting ENVIROMENTAL protestors - They're like freaking pacifists and riot police was surrounding them

    The police crossed the line and they provoked the protestors to attack. They have no one but themselves to blame

    My side is killing me, i was trapped in for over 8 hours next to the bank of england - The police refused to let anyone out
    Well I am certainley sure the police do wrong at times, but from the outsiders perspective, it seems people lately are jumping on the police as perpetrators all the time. I was talking with someone yesterday about these riots and they know whats going on as much as me, and they assumed the cops were just systematically beating everyone down. As for me, I figure there is always a little bit of both going on at the same time. Some people have it coming.

    At times?
    This is British police ... when are they ever in the right?


    They are the ones who hyped this and caused the riots. I blame them, they trapped us for hours and i mean hours. I was there from 12 in the afternoon till 9 at night ffs.
    You will piss people off by doing that and they picked on this group of girls who was sitting down drinking beer and arrested them for reasons beyond me which angered the crowd and led to the police being attacked -Even the legal observer was surprised

    Let's all just thank God the police didn't have guns - Phew. Judging by what they did to de menezes they would probably have opened fire :P

    Eco retards are not always peaceful.Does E.L.F and A.L.F ring a bell?Does eco-terrorist ring a bell?


    The police crossed the line and they provoked the protestors to attack.
    How did they cross the line and provoke scum(when people start to vandalize property,assault people and riot they stop being protesters)?

    They have no one but themselves to blame
    You sound like these pieces of **** who would honor a child rapist and cop killer.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    And you sound like a retard who has no idea what happened. STFU and leave it for those who actually understand what happened to talk.

    No enviromental protestor damaged property, that was the financial protestors. The enviromentals were the most peaceful and caused no trouble until the riot police showed up and started chucking people around.

    Who the **** are these eco terrorists? Are you making things up?

    One part of me thinks the police should have Tasered them all. Or bashed their heads in. All of 'em.

    Another part of me is more reasonable.
