UPDATED: Dog-on-a-string brigade attack G20

Any gathering of world leaders, no matter how left wing or moonbattish (think Obama, Brown and Rudd) will bring all the anti-globalisation headbangers out of the woodwork for a free punch-up. Thus, the G20 summit has become the target of thousands of protesters, resulting in one death:
The man fell over unconscious, prompting a member of the public to call emergency services.
...
Police "made extensive efforts to resuscitate him both there and on the way to hospital'', an emergency services spokesperson said.

The man's death came as police, many dressed in riot gear, were out in force as thousands demonstrated through the city's financial district, outside the US embassy and in Trafalgar Square.

Chanting anti-capitalist, anti-war and anti-pollution slogans, they vented their fury as G20 leaders prepare to discuss the world financial crisis tomorrow.

Read it here.

UPDATE: It turns out that the police who tried to administer first aid to this person, who was a passer-by, were themselves pelted with missiles - disgusting. The UK Daily Mail has the full story.

  • You should get your facts straight before you write this type of thing. Watch the video, it shows the man (who was on his way home from work, not part of the protest), being attacked from behind by the police. It is clear from the video footage that the man was not a threat, he had his back to the police and was walking away. Inaccurate articles like yours only harm your credibility, I certainly wouldn't believe anything I read on this site.

  • There is nothing in the post inconsistent with what you have said. Read the update at the bottom (added within an hour or so of the original post, and well before your comment), where it states clearly the person was a passer-by. The fact is that when the police have to deal with a violent mob such as this, mistakes do happen. If the police had not needed to be on the streets to deal with this protest in the first place (or if the protesters hadn't attacked those trying to administer first aid) the victim would still be alive.
