G20 sweat thread

No thread on the G20 summit yet? Any expections? Thoughts?

Here's a link to the SPIEGEL live newsblog in English. As the SPIEGEL is located in Hamburg it should be pretty solid. It also has a live stream included; the commentary is in German though.

It's been ruled by people from the right wing of the social democrats or by christian democrats for decades. So, the short answer is no.

However it has been a hotbed for anarchist-leftist violence for the 1st of May and such. Both the Hamburg police and the Hamburg anarchists have a reputation of escalating things quickly.

I would say it's a bad place to stage this whole thing.

The police seems to employ some Roman army tactics:

Re: G20 sweat thread

Right now the live stream shows the concert (Beethoven's 9th) on one side, and the protest one the other. Pretty bizarre.

The concert is actually a real treat. Trump looks bored though.

I always wonder why they do this in a big city. This basically shuts the city down for a week. Why not have it at camp David or a similar location?

Re: G20 sweat thread

The police seems to have largely retreated; the violent protesters feed the fire undisturbed.



edit: the police is now coming back in force.

They probably wanted to show off the new concert hall. It is a nice concert hall though.
