G20 protests: Rioters loot RBS office after clashes in City

G20 summit protesters have forced their way inside an RBS office in the City amid violent clashes with police as world leaders gather in London
Telegraph.co.uk

Anarchists smashed windows of the building on Threadneedle Street near the Bank of England and looted office equipment and papers, throwing smoke grenades, chairs and eggs.

A printer was seen being thrown out of a window as the group of protesters, many with their faces covered by bandanas, ransacked the office, despite a huge security operation to protect Europe's financial capital.

Riot police have been deployed near the scene but the protesters appeared had a clear run of the building for several minutes. The bailed-out bank was known to be a target of anti-capitalist groups in advance of the protests, but police efforts had concentrated on defending its headquarters on Bishopsgate in Liverpool Street, around half a mile away.

Earlier, eleven arrests were reported before a tense standoff developed between rows of police holding batons and a surging crowd outside the Bank of England.

One man, bleeding from the head, was repeatedly seen to apparently goad officers, who did not respond.

At one point, a black-clad masked man in the crowd struck an officer with a long pole. The officer was pulled away by colleagues and required treatment at the scene.

Scotland Yard said around 4,000 people had gathered outside the Bank and cordons had been put up in response to "increasing levels of violence".

A spokesman said: "There are currently police cordons in place at Princes Street, Queen Victoria Street, Walbrook Street, King William Street, Lombard Street, Cornhill and Threadneedle Street."

Many conservative and libertarian Americans agree with the G20 protests.

While most of the London and European protesters are from the far left, many working Americans feel the same about Washington’s excessive bailouts for Wall Street and the banking establishment. Washington has bailed out the banks, Wall Street & their Washington special interests and much of the cost is added to the national debt to by paid by this and future generations while real estate and investments continue to fall.

Find out how a growing repudiate the debt movement could stop Washington’s deficits, the exploding national debt and end the bailouts.
The Campaign to Cancel the Washington National Debt By 12/21/2012 Constitutional Amendment is starting now in the U.S.

Greetings in Peace.

Like every great prophetic event there always has to be a smokescreen! One either prophetically devised for the divine will of Yahwah the Creator or engineered by the deceivers of the whole world for their perverse agenda.

The fanfare of premptive anti-violence propaganda was a decoy from the focus on the mess that capatalism's end result has been shown to be=collapse of the system.

On the other hand, it was also a divine attempt to allow the Elect/chosen of Yahwah's Creations to consolidate on what time it is; while the destructive forces remain in discumbabilation; but not for long!

Like the 1960's American civil unrest; it was a smokescreen even though J.Edgar Hoover and the U S Government knew that they were searching for the Black Messiah, like Ole Pharaoh and Herod of Yeshua's time.

The bigger event playing out in the prophetic dynamic of the events will remain ensconsed until the appointed. Those who have 'eyes' to see and read the signs of the time used their prophetic literacy acumen and skills to decipher the subtext.

More soon....as President Obama revealed who he is in Prophecy...article comming soon. It was in our faces!

Prophetic Princess.
