Big protests in the US and Europe - level 3
Protesting into the night, some 600 people met in the heart of London’s financial centre on Saturday evening. Many were trying to stay in the area by St Paul’s Cathedral.
The protest is part of the global movement. People want change in the world’s political and financial systems.
The protest was in full force in New York’s Time Square. Protestors stopped traffic. The mood was festival like.
The scene was totally different in Rome. There was violence on the streets, some of the worst for years. Demonstrators set fire to a police van. Officers managed to get away before the whole car was on fire. Police fired tear gas. Thousands in Rome joined the global day of protests against politicians and bankers.
