City of London workers waved £10 notes at G20 protesters today as thousands descended on London’s financial heartland.


you can tell there's a recession on.



2001 Mayday they were waving 50s


Not only that mate, in 2001 they were throwing 50s out the window at the crowd below with "Have a (edit) wash" written on them......

However provocative they are, violence is not the answer.

Not sure if it was posted here and unfortunately don't have a source link or image but they also held a sign out of the windows reading:

"WHILE YOU'RE HERE PROTESTING, WE'RE REPOSSESSING YOUR HOUSE!"



Man, you guys lack a sense of humour.

The police should do their damned jobs and arrest those waving such signs for inciting a riot.

They won't though. This is a disgusting display.

In what way, shape or form is that funny at all?
Really, I'd like to know.

Yes in the current climate and with everything that's going on, inciting a riot is a joke... Miscreant.

1. Happy April Fool's
2. Most of the people who are "bankers" are just normal middle class people whose children go to school with yours. Imagine your response if people started blockading your work as an ongoing thing.
3. Develop a sense of humour.

The people who riot are responsible for their own behaviour.

If you read "I'm repossessing your house" and you decide to destory things that are not yours that all you.

Provokation to incite a riot is against the law.
If you read that statement and don't see it as inflammatory and provokational in its context then you are deluding yourself.

I would laugh.
I wouldn't be incited to riot.
Perhaps you should learn to control yourself.

*Yawn*

I have no time for trolls or provoceteurs on ATS.

And before we get into the debate about whether or not you're usually a 'great guy with insightful opinions and posts' - I couldn't care less. Right now you're being inciting, instigational, aggrivating, trolling and are provoceturing in your own right.

Spiritually, I agree with you. Humanly, I think lynch mobs and firing squads might not be a bad idea.

Always that internal battle, do I just sit in Lotus position and say OM?

Or beat the hell out of them?

Sitting here with them not taunting me to my face, it is easy to say Om. In person, someone would be eating their own teeth.

Fair play to the city workers.

I applaud them.

They were issued with threats and told to dress down for fear of assault.

The so called protestors who threatened them are the cowards.

I would love to see these people who issued the threats to ordinary people going about their work get a good kicking into the bargain.

Economic violence is violence. It has the result of costing lives, and damaging the quality of lives of those upon which it is perpetrated. Often those who perpetrate economic violence also use physical violence to do so, with armies and police forces.

The people in the windows are not less violent. They are violent and have figured out a way to encode their form of violence into law. And they keep their hands clean by paying others to do their dirty work.

The masses in the street just have to do their own dirty work, and deal with the fact the most violent among us have made it against the law to fight back.

Protestors who 'made threats' - Who would carry out those threats.

Bankers who hide behind the security of the Police and wave £ notes and inciting/instigational banners out of windows, knowing they can't be touched.

Although I'm TOTALLY AGAINST any kind of violence, threats, inictement... I don't see how the former are the cowards; the latter are the cowards. - Although NOT all of them are actually 'that bad' and don't really comprehend what they're helping to work against... Half the bastards in that building, know exactly what the deal is and are still griping about freakin bonus cheques!

Chill out T, they're just sheep bleating at the circling pack of wolves from the safety of the pen


Your flocking about reminded me of this advert I saw on the Lower Lea Crossing today.

For the record this wasn't the exact advert. I was doing 35mph and Lower Lea is well within RPG range of the ExCel centre.

I GUARANTEE - Had ANY ONE of those bankers been called into "The Bosses office" during the protests today and was told he'd been laid off.

FIRST THING he would have done - TRASHED THE BUILDING.

Second thing after being escorted out - If not arrested for causing criminal damage - JOINED THE PROTESTORS.

Did you read the part where it said they were waving tenners at protesters PEACEFULLY marching?

Or don't facts interest you?
