Egypt, Libya... London?


Around 400,000 people joined a Violent demonstration yesterday in London to oppose the coalition government's spending cuts and broken promises. Teachers, nurses, midwives, council and other public sector workers were joined by students, pensioners and direct action supporters, bringing the centre of the capital to a standstill.

Tens of thousands of people streamed along Embankment and breached police barriers in Whitehall. The rioters many of whom students set off from the University of London in Bloomsbury, swelled the crowd, which stretched back as far as St Paul's Cathedral.

A lot of people in the UK are barely able to make ends meet as it is but if something isn't done about the state of finance soon, the national debts will continue to rise until our economies can no longer function.
And this is not just the UK, The US is over 3 trillion in debt and its still rising with no sign of it ever being payed off. Interest is charged on all money printed, meaning there is more theoretical money than real money, with more interest being charged on the debt. Its absolute madness.

  3. I think it's cool people are not standing around anymore and letting the government screw things up. People need to realize that it's on us, the citizens to stand up and fight for what is right.

  8. Bah, there's political unrest in the whole world at the moment. But still i can see why they protest in violent ways because our voices aren't heard anymore we pretend to be a democracy only to be ruled by people who sit in a large tower not caring/understanding the problems of the common people.
