Protests were in the night. 600 people met in London. It was on Saturday evening. Many people were in the financial centre of London.

The protests are in many places in the world. People want change. People want to change the political system. People want to change the financial system.

The protest was very big in New York. Protestors stopped cars. The atmosphere was very good.

The situation was very different in Rome. The protests on the streets were very big. The police car started to be on fire. Policemen ran out before all the car was on fire. Thousands of people were on the streets in Rome. They were a part of the big protests. The protests are against politicians and bankers.
