G20 Riots in Hamburg

RT reports today that with piles of wreckage, burned out barricades and broken glass all around, Hamburg, Germany now looks like a battlefield instead of the host city of a G20 summit. According to the report, city services are currently removing bottles and broken glass from the streets, however, the city is preparing for another round of protests.

Speaking to RT, one witness said, “The violence yesterday evening was awful. And I also don’t understand the message they’re trying to send. It is violence. It is simply tragic.” Another resident said, “What was clear from the very beginning was that the police did nothing. The officers gathered in small groups. Generally, you could say it was incompetence.” Photos and videos on social media show the city streets filled with broken glass and the remnants of barricades.
