Ya empiezan los antis a fastidiar.

Tumultuosas protestas están teniendo lugar en Edimburgo con motivo de la crucial reunión del G8 en los alrededores de la capital escocesa.
Como suele suceder, los grupos antisitema (motejados en todas las informaciones, entiendo que erróneamente, de anarquistas) están tratando de boicotear la reunión del G8 cuyo propósito confeso es diseñar una aproximación a la reducción de la pobreza en el mundo. Lo mismo sucedió en Seattle en el 99, durante la llamada Ronda del Milenio del GATT; lo mismo ocurrió en Génova en 2001 durante la cumbre del entonces G7.

CONCRETE slabs and park benches were turned into weapons against the police as anti-capitalist protesters brought chaos and violence to the city centre.

Time and again, hundreds of anarchists confronted riot police as horrified tourists and office workers ran for cover. Police said they were confident most of the ring leaders had been caught as they arrested more than 100 protesters who had come from across Europe to wreak havoc in the Capital.

"I think the police in this country are very well trained and organised. If this happened in Italy or Spain, they [police] would have had the weapons out and it would have been very violent" - Daniel Rico, 27, protester from Spain
HUNDREDS of anarchists brought Edinburgh city centre to a standstill yesterday as they repeatedly clashed with riot police on the eve of the G8 summit in Gleneagles.

Bands of activists from across Europe armed themselves with stones and staves, bottles and bits of ripped-up park benches to attack police as they targeted the city's financial centre and Princes Street.
Lothian and Borders Police urged shops and offices to shut as they moved to contain the demonstrators.
The day of violence left 30 people needing treatment for injuries, including some with broken bones. Two police officers were taken to hospital with injuries but later released.
En otro titular se nos dice que Midge Ure, el mítico cantante de Ultravox y uno de los organizadores de los conciertos Live 8, ha pedido a los anarquistas que se vayan a casa, porque ponen en peligro la campaña contra la pobreza.
