G20 meeting unlikely to go off without serious unrest

As we approach 2 April and the beginning of the London G20 meeting the signs are that we could be in for a seriously tough few days. Leaks coming from the police force are suggesting that 50,000 volt stun guns are to be used to quell demonstrations and there is serious concern that the safety of some representatives could be in danger. It is also rumoured that the event will cost around £20 million at a time when economies around the world are in freefall.

The actual demonstrations against what the G20 stands for began today, although these were very peaceful and went off without any trouble. The real concerns will begin in the couple of days before and during the G20 summit with many officials expecting copycat demonstrations and violence to that seen at the last G20 meeting. All police leave in London has been suspended for the period in which the G20 summit is active and police officers from around the country are to be flown in to help assist the London police force.

However, as we will cover in later posts, the Gordon Brown PR machine appears to have hit a brick wall with suggestions that many of the policies Gordon Brown is trying to push through will be blocked by fellow G20 members.
