Protesters rally against World Economic Forum
Sat Jan 31, 2009
GENEVA/DAVOS, Switzerland (Reuters) – Hundreds of people rallied in Geneva and Davos Saturday to protest against the World Economic Forum, saying the elite gathered for it annual meeting are not qualified to fix the world’s problems.
Carrying banners reading ‘You are the Crisis’ and throwing snowballs, several hundred protesters marched to fences surrounding the heavily guarded Hotel Seehof in the Davos ski resort, where many world leaders and business people stay during the forum.
Protester Alex Heideger, a member of the Davos Green Party, said these were the people to blame for the economic mess.
“It’s the same people who came last year and said the world economic situation is fine, and now we’re in a financial crisis. Now it’s the taxpayer who has to solve the whole problem.
“It’s people like you and me who have to pay for it with their tax money,” he said.
In Geneva, where the WEF has its headquarters, police in riot gear fired tear gas and water canon to disperse a crowd that had gathered in a square near the train station, sending people running in all directions. Witnesses said there did not appear to be any violence by the protesters.
SONOFABUSH! The ethically challenged corpoRATe criminals get to have them a drunken greed fest, er, um “conference” while our fellow citizens of the world who are merely expressing their displeasure at the complete collapse of the world economy get billy clubbed, pepper sprayed, teargassed, shot with rubber bullets and water canon, and arrested. The fascist pigs in the street do violence to us regular folks, while the corpoRATe criminals attend symposia named “restoring confidence in corpoRATions” hehehehehehehehehe. Yeah, teargas will do that alright, sure…
DAGNABIT! It’s a shame that the davos pigs didn’t do us all a favor and instead make some arrests INSIDE THE wef.
We could all do with some:
CRIMINAL PROSECUTION OF THE corpoRATe THIEVES!
The Telepathic Crickets™ on the ClapSotronics editorial board and I would like to thank our friends who took to the streets in davos. We are only sad that we couldn’t be there by your side. WE LOVE THE SMELL OF TEARGAS IN THE MORNING…
