STORYLINE
Police were out in force for the G-20 summit on Thursday, swarming around the east London riverside site as small groups of demonstrators protested world poverty and climate change.
Outbreaks of violence in big protests a day earlier in the capital’s financial district had led to 86 arrests, and one man collapsed and died.
At the ExCel Centre in the city’s east Docklands district, where leaders of the Group of 20 financial powers held Thursday’s talks on the global economy, police manned barriers and checkpoints around the security perimeter, turning away anyone without accreditation within a half-mile (800-metre) radius.
Police boats patrolled the River Thames.
Outside the summit venue, dozens demonstrated.
Some held signs that read “Stop Ethiopia from Starving” while “Stop the War” coalition supporters also gathered by the Thames.
Others carried a symbolic coffin through the crowd of protesters to raise awareness of ongoing violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Many more demonstrated in the city’s financial district and near London Bridge.
Police said there had been about 100 arrests so far, most of them on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, one hundred police officers, some wearing riot gear entered a squat in the London’s financial district – known as the City – trying to identify protesters involved in Wednesday’s G20 clashes.
Around 70 people were led out of the old Convention Centre building on the corner of Wilson and Earl Street.
