    Thousands of demonstrators took to the streets in the Alpine resort of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, where G7 leaders are set to meet on Sunday. As Naomi Conrad reports, peaceful protests turned into skirmishes.

    Protesters clashed with police in the German resort town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen on Saturday as thousands demonstrated against a meeting of G7 leaders, starting today at a nea in rby luxury hotel.

    Police responded with pepper spray when a group of marchers tried to break through their cordon. Scuffles broke out and at least one protester was carried away by paramedics.

    Police estimated the crowd at some 3,600, while organizers put it at 4,500. Police vastly outnumbered marchers in the picturesque, former Winter Olympic Games venue at the foot of Germany’s highest mountain, the Zugspitze.

    Playing drums, tambourines and shaking rattles, protesters shouted, “Brick by brick, wall by wall, stop G7 and make the system fall!” They carried banners reading “Fight G7 for Revolution!” and “G7 go to hell! I like Putin.”
    “I’m protesting because the big financial corporations have too much influence over politics,” said Thomas Schmidbauer, 50, from Sindelsdorf in Bavaria, who was dressed in traditional Bavarian lederhosen shorts.
    “Poverty isn’t being tackled. It is unfair. We could organize our economies much better for the people,” he added.

    Bunch of spoiled brat, trust fund losers. They supposedly hate capitalism or whatever...but they all have iphones and the latest hipster douche footwear.

    The G7 meetings are just for show anyway. All the grunt work, in terms of agreements on future action, is all decided well ahead of time. Shave and take a shower ya dorks.
