G-20 protesters break into Royal Bank of Scotland

G-20 protesters clashed with riot police in central London on Wednesday, breaking into the heavily guarded Royal Bank of Scotland and smashing its windows. Nearly two dozen people were arrested.

Protesters focused the Royal Bank of Scotland because it was bailed out by the British government...its former chief executive Fred Goodwin...managed to walk off with a tidy annual pension of 703,000 pounds ($1.2 million) — just as unemployment in Britain is at 2 million and rising.

Protester's stormed the Royal Bank of Scotland, breaking windows and spray painting the building with words like "Theives" and "Class War". No major injuries were reported (one officer was struck with office equipment thrown from a window) and roughly two dozen arrests so far.

Basically, the UK is in a similar situation as the US. Unemployment is rising, financial institutions are failing/being bailed out and people are getting scared and angry.

I imagine that this is just the beginning of a lot of civil unrest, both in the UK and worldwide.
