Freedom and democracy: American values
Protests are taking place in Pittsburgh, aimed at the G20 leaders who are meeting there. This video exposes the aggressive police actions towards demonstrators.
There'll be protests in Scotland this November when G20 finance ministers (Alistair Darling and his equivalents), together with the governors of central banks in the major economies, gather to discuss the global economic crisis. The three unifying themes of the protests and counter-summit are set to be recession, war and climate change, with Saturday 7 November expected to be the major focus for activists.
I'll post more details of the St Andrews G20 events when I have them.
UPDATE: Excellent coverage HERE.
