Riot diary. g20 pictures and videos, 1-4-2009

April 2, 2009

This is a video i took after gaining access to the RBS Building (Royal Bank Of Scotland – notorious for incompetence, hubris and corruption) with twenty or so other individuals. The offices were quickly set alight and i made my escape up the fire escape persued by a number of portly riot cops, who, encumbered by shields, batons, armour, helmets and excessive body fat took several minutes to make the ascent. The short fideo clip shows the banking district of the City Of London occupied by massed anarchist hordes.

At the end of the demonstration all of the protestors had been (predictably) caught in a police ‘kettle’:  an ever shrinking impermeable cordon of police lines crushing the demonstrators into a smaller and smaller space. Eventually after seven hours we were let out one by one through a gauntlet of police and police dogs, our identities checked against FIT squad photographs of known troublemakers. I walked free…

    Stay safe.
