Just hype? Aimless protests?

Hang on. Turn off the MSM for a minute.

Geithner and Bernanke get grilled:

Let's tune in at, say 2:18 -






Bachmann to Geithner: "...an international monetary standard as soon as the G20... Would you categorically renounce the United States moving away from the dollar and going to a global currency as suggested this morning by China and also by Russia?"

Geithner: "I would, yes."

...And the Federal Reserve Chair? -

"I would also."



WATCH BERNANKE'S BODY LANGUAGE as he says this.

Watch it again and again...



But you can't base so much on that, can you?

-OK let's do some digging. We've got the

G20 2008 Plans

-revealing the new global system has been years in the planning, and includes enormous political moves contrary to democratic government (PDF + detailed breakdown, most notably from Maxmars)

plus

Here it comes - British PM to propose Global New Deal to Rescue World Economy

-which includes a PDF & discussion of the G20 Plans for the coming week.

If you read the above & want more background, try:

Going Global? Washington DC controlled by G20!

plus

G7 takes back seat to G20

Overall people are protesting against the globalization of corporate business (aka outsourcing, etc.) and the ruinous policies of their governments. But as more become aware of all the above, and the implications for the replacement of national sovereignty with global financial, then economic, then political governance and government - the likelihood is these protests will not be the culmination, but the beginning.

Don't be so afraid.
Its happened before.
It happens all the time.
The protesters scream and yell, and the cops bash the crap out of them.
Its a usual occurrence.

yay, I get to watch more YouTube videos of people acting stupid!
sometimes I really love this planet.(no sarcasm)
I am glad people are standing up and doing something that they feel is wrong. It is our right as a people, not only as citizens, to demand that we are in control, not them.
I hope something good comes from this. If nothing else, this sends a good message to the powers whom think they control us. They may have big muscles, but we have more of em. Good job London.


Edit-Get GOOD footage =)

Sorry, the Brits do it their way:

MSM Photos


The protesters described the march having a "carnival-like atmosphere" with brass bands, whistles and music.

(source: photo 5)

Haven't yet found a photo of the protesters serving tea to the Bobbies. But these are only initial images.

As to the message in photo 1: it shows some awareness, but is sadly naive.

It's already happened, and the money the PTB have borrowed to pay for it is already on our collective shoulders, not to mention our children's shoulders...

This time mate... 'the protestors' i.e you and me, and anybody with half a sense of respect for the world we live in. Oh wait sorry, i'll exclude you. Anyway this time, certain members of certain groups have promised to return any acts of violence that the police will deliver.

Not just that, but major alternative players have decided to bring London to a standstill with major acts of revolt.

Good for them i say... I'm glad people are standing up for what is right.

I'm sure you'll disagree.

British police don't carry firearms - am I right ?

If so, then this should be interesting ...

Well that depends... our police DO have armed response teams and many pilice at airports and ports do carry guns.

But our police don't need guns, guns are for the weak in my eyes. If you need a gun then it suggests that you are unable to think properly and have to rely on other means.

Tactics will be used by both sides, both guerilla warfare and organised anti-riot squads.... and you're right this will get interesting.

It will definitely become a part of history, sadly all the rioting won't help us in any way.
No matter how many people will turn up, this will have now results whatsoever for our side.

If you will be there, take care.

I will join the riot, but I expect to get home with a bleeding nose.

Just imagine it's in China. The BBC and CNN types will scream "Human Right's", "Government brutality" and "Free speech" or even Genocide.

It's in London ?? Err.. ermm It's just simply normal Police action maintaining Public Peace. No Double standard at all.

Maybe in some cases ... perhaps ...

Still, the way things are going, I'd still feel more secure inside a car like this -

Well that car is pretty cool, but ultimately it's a weapon designed to kill.

This is not the way forward....

Back on topic, i'm reading stories in the telegraph that MANY protestors and activists are coming from all over the world to take part in these protests. Good for them.

No, I live at the other end of the country. Ironically, I don't have the kind of money it would have cost me to get London to demonstrate about the state of the economy and banking.

People protesting as is their right.I do have a few questions though.Did they get time off work to protest?And are they getting paid for it?I mean i dont have the time to protest since im not unhappy with my life.Despite the economy,im still finding jobs to do.I guess they must be on welfare or unemployment or working cash jobs since they are alive right?So they must be eating and have roofs over their head.Just an observation.
