Thousands of protesters from around Europe, who say the G20 has failed to solve many of the issues threatening world peace, poured into Hamburg to join the main demonstration, dubbed “Welcome to Hell” by the alliance of anti-capitalist groups who organized it. Police expected around 100,000 protesters in the port city, some 8,000 of whom are deemed by security forces to be ready to commit violence. Up to 20,000 police officers will be on hand for the main demonstration. There are riot police in full gear, police dogs, etc, everywhere in the city. Shopkeepers on the street, fearing possible damage to their property, either shut up for the day or bolstered up their windows with wooden planks.
Black block/Antifa/Anarchists thugs:
How it all started: The black block/Antifa (500+) formed a line and was waiting forever to march (and create mayhem). Suddenly the police came and demanded that every one with a mask on should take it off (because wearing a mask in public is illegal in Germany). Antifa refused doing that so the police basically went berserk on the black block.
Cue, the mayhem. Just press play:
