G20 protests: Riot police fire water cannon at protestors as summit gets underway amid chaotic scenes

The “Welcome to Hell” rally was billed as the climax of a number of protests against both the G20 summit taking place in the city and Donald Trump’s arrival.

    Enjoy Germany !

    Suck it up Deutschland !

  • Cops should never wear riot gear at a protest. Because a protest isn’t supposed to be a riot, otherwise it should be outlawed from the get-go. And the first cop that gets knocked in the head with a brick, then they have permission to use extreme force, including deadly force if necessary. It’s the only way to put a stop to the nonsense.

      They should have these meetings in northern Canada at one of the fly in lodges. Hard for protesters to reach.

        And those who make it will be eaten alive by mosquitoes and blackflies.

            First time was my worst. I swelled up from so many bites I could not make a fist, one eye was completely shut and the other was close to it. I was close to getting flown back to town which would have probably ended my career. 95% DEET was my solution. I also found that by the end of the summer my tolerance to the bites had gone up.

    Would the African immigrants into Europe be turned back and deported immediately if we could convince the EU that every single one of them was a fanatical Trump supporter?

    Why are they using water in those water cannons … should be pepper spray. That will wipe the smiles of the goons.
