DAVOS, Switzerland (Reuters) - Anti-capitalist protesters threw bottles at riot police on Saturday and officers responded with water cannon as a small demonstration on the final day of the World Economic Forum briefly turned violent.
The clash came after a group of about 100 mainly young, local protesters marched through the chic Swiss ski resort of Davos and gathered near the railway station, some distance from the conference center hosting the Forum.
It was the second episode of violence in Davos this week. Swiss anarchists claimed responsibility for a small explosion that broke windows and shook a hotel on Thursday where executives were meeting. Nobody was hurt in that incident.
Waving banners saying "Down with Capitalism" and "Stop Screwing Us on Salaries", Saturday's demonstrators marched along an approved snow-covered route taking them past the outer perimeter of the WEF's elite meeting.

The creeps inside and the creeps in the street are all on the same side.
Looks like Switzerland is going to have some more explaining to do...
Tunisia/Swiss banks/Gold Whats Next?
Yes, anti-capitalists afe greedy, not capitalists. Real capitalists know that you have to give to get. Anti-capitalists want something for nothing, to gain advantages from the labor of others, without giving anything to those others.
Leftists aren’t anti-capitalists. They want the capital controlled by government vs. free enterprise capitalism where the individual has the freedom to control it.
That meeting has nothing to do with Capitalism or Capitalists. There sure as hell aren’t any Capitalists inside.
I’m a little amused that “Anti-Capitalist” protesters would even be there.....
I'm inclined to believe that those on the inside paid those on the outside to protest in order to perpetuate the farce that those on the inside are really capitalists. Even if it was not direct, we can be reasonably certain that the protester's organizations are ultimately funded through donations from the pseudo-capitalists inside.
Marc Faber would strongly agree.

A little long, but worthwhile.
Too bad they couldn't get him to say what he really thinks. ;-)
Heh! It was pretty interesting and instructive at the same time. You could tell the Bloomberg talking heads weren’t used to people being blunt and direct. It’s the same sort of thing with Peter Schiff, only he’s not quite as blunt.
