Hamburg is preparing for the opening of the summit of «Big twenty». The security summit has turned to the German police hard test. The city brought together thousands of opponents of globalization — from environmentalists to anarchists. Their massive procession this evening turned into a riot. The police had to use water cannons.
Police in Hamburg used water cannons against radical protesters, who came to share «Welcome to hell» before the G20 summit in Hamburg. This was reported by «TV Center».
It was a response to firecrackers and bottles, which the protesters began to throw guards. A separate group of protesters staged a sit-blockade.
According to RIA Novosti, police attacked about a thousand people. Their faces were covered by masks.
