Huge G-20 Protest Rocks London

Here we go again: Activist groups are taking to the streets of London in an effort to make their voices heard by the 20 leaders arriving for the G-20 summit. While the BBC reports a "carnival atmosphere" is now reigning among the marchers shouting slogans about the economy and global warming, and most groups have pledged peaceful, nonviolent protests, anarchists tend to make up for their small numbers at these summits by wreaking havoc. Many have expressed concern about the protests turning violent, saying such a development would undermine the united front of the diverse coalition of activists. Naturally, security forces have planned for every contingency, and law enforcement is on the ground in substantial numbers.
