In the tradition of The Clash, The Sex Pistols and Guy Fawkes, London’s citizens have taken to the streets and declared Anarchy by the hundreds of thousands to protest in front of The Bank of England during this week’s G20 Circle Jerk.

From The Independent:
Around 1,200 demonstrators were penned in front of the Bank of England as riot vans blocked off surrounding streets and stopped hundreds of other protesters from entering the square.
At the junction of Threadneedle Street and Bartholomew Lane, masked and hooded men tried to breach police lines to get through to the climate camp in nearby Bishopsgate. They were beaten back by police, who were pelted with empty beer cans, fruit and flour. At least one officer was seen with blood spurting from a cut on his forehead.
