Sunny: apparently the BBC is reporting on ppl trapped, but no questions asked on why the police are keeping ppl trapped. Typical.by pickledpolitics via twitter at 2:13 PM

I really hope that you stay safe!

Protesters on the cranes was one of the first main flareups at the 'battle in seattle.' Rooftops, eh?

I'm gonna be really selfish, but do you think you'd be able to get any footage on your mobile that you could upload to the media portal? Perhaps we might catch things the MSM miss.

Stay safe!

Peace,

MGGG

"Missiles - including fruit - were thrown towards police as red smoke rose above the crowd."

Missiles.......okay.......where is the real story?????
Inciting times indeed...

1417 The BBC's Mark Georgiou says: Police in riot gear are slowly clearing the area in front of RBS on Threadneedle Street. It is noisy and the occasional missle is thrown. One protestor has bared his backside to the police. I've not seen any arrests so far. Police seem happy just to contain crowd.


Haha... people mooning...


1422 The BBC's Mark Georgiou says: Police horses move to line up outside RBS. Firework thrown


Horses may not be the best move in this circumstance... seems like they'd spook too easily and start something else.

That was priceless seeing the police getting shoved up against that wall by a massive group of our people. The BBC on TV only showed it for a second and then blew it off completely.

Lots of people apparently penned in by the police and not being allowed to leave.

One woman saying her friend needed to get home to get her kid from school....tip lady....if you have something as important as that, don't go and stick yourself straight in the middle of a protest that isn't exactly small and peaceful!


Some people.

Is it normal for the police to box the people there in and not let them leave? A lady on Sky said she asked to leave so she and her friend could go pick up her child from school and she was told tough luck by the police person.

The police are currently trying to 'push' back the protesters even though they have them 'coralled' in , there's no where for the protesters to go, so it's a big police show , they cut off the live feed to bring Obama on saying he's going to try and heal the world nonsense, right now they are saying about the political leaders whilst trying to avoid the protest.
We are pretty much held up good, no windows to smash , but the staff would like to go home as well.
I'll have to upload the clip and photos tomorrow though I don't have the cable here.

A girl was on earlier saying that she'd like to go home , but the police won't let her, a few peoeple said the same, I expect a large riot with the police being allowed to go in heavy handed soon. seeing as the crowds can't go anywhere.
OOPs , the commentator just said "Hows the riots, oh , I mean the protests' going." LOL

So now we have proof that if anything bad happens there, It is the police who caused it by not letting peaceful protesters go home. I knew that they would pull something like a false flag today and we will just have to wait and see exactly how it goes down.

God bless the protesters!!!

Yeah..news isn't showing anything here,medvedev talking.The protestors should push forward and trample them,just like they have trampled over our rights by enforcing draconian terrorist laws...in the nicest way possible of course.

The only way the police can "bring order" is to start beating people, and then calming everyone down

G20 Meltdown: Large crowd left the bank of england and went down queen victoria street. It wasn't clear if the cordon was moved or the police opened it. Vanloads of riot police deployed to stop them, attacking the demonstrators.


Seems the bankers want to have a crack at the protesters aswell.
