Banks braced for city riots, Rioters to hang Bankers effigies

The Guardian article features the vandalism to a Bankers house, because of the possibility of a false flag, I omitted that for this excerpt:


Banks braced for City riots during G20 summit after attack on Sir Fred Goodwin’s home

The last time bankers faced angry demonstrations, some responded by pouring champagne or photocopied £50 notes from windows, but it is unlikely that protesters targeting the City next week during the G20 summit will be met by similar shows of bravado.

Many staff are being advised to dress down next Wednesday and Thursday to avoid being marked out as City workers – if they cannot avoid the protests entirely by working from home. Others have been advised to avoid leaving the office to attend meetings.  –Guardian–

  • Thousands of City staff told to stay at home next week
  • Bankers told not to wear suits and ‘dress down’
  • Additional 2,500 police deployed at cost of £10million

City workers are being urged to stay at home or to dress down during next week’s G20 summit to avoid being targeted by anti-capitalist protesters.

Unprecedented measures are being put in place to prepare for thousands of demonstrators targeting the City and Canary Wharf.

About 3,000 anti-capitalist protesters are expected, with groups next Wednesday marching to the Bank of England, holding ‘flashcamps’ outside the European Climate Exchange in Bishopsgate, and marching on the US Embassy.

Demonstrators have vowed to hang effigies of bankers from lampposts along the protest route.

City workers have been warned not to wear suits, but to ‘dress down’ in chinos and loafers because they would be obvious targets.
