Massive Protests at G8 Summit

Over 250,000 people have converged on Edinburgh, Scotland to protest the G8 Summit. This was the largest political demonstration in the history of Scotland. Over 250 international members of the CWI and International Socialist Resistance participated in various events including the large march on Saturday.

Unfortunately, police intimidation has lead to some unfortunate events. Sean at To The Barricades (one of my favorite blogs by-the-way) brings us coverage of the G8 protests in Scotland:

During the Carnival For Full Enjoyment in Scotland today police violently attacked demonstrators (oh, I'm sorry, "clashed with" as if it is ever an even struggle) leaving 21 injured. Several fainted. Scores were arrested.
