Posted on 08/09/2011 4:18:04 PM PDT by SkyPilot
London is reeling from three nights of rioting that's poured hundreds of people into the streets, leaving several local neighborhoods in shambles. One man is dead, dozens injured and arrested.
The protests have now spread to other cities, with violence reported in parts of Birmingham, Liverpool and Bristol.
Great Britain and other parts of the world are experiencing unrest at a time of global economic uncertainty and stock market volatility.
Here's a look at what's happening around the world and how economic downturns are bringing protestors into the streets.
Police in London say the violence began during a vigil for a man, Mark Duggan, whod been killed by police. However, those on the streets say what's happening goes beyond one man's death.
In late June, half the public schools in Britain where closed by a massive protest over public pensions cuts, including three major teachers' unions, customs and immigration officers, and air traffic controllers. Some 750,000 people took part in the protest.
London's press has reported that discontent has been simmering among Britain's urban poor for years, in neighborhoods like Tottenham, where the riots started.
But as one man told NBC News about an economic protest two months ago, "There was not a word in the press about our protests. Last night (Saturday) a bit of rioting and looting and now look around you."

I have no doubt Satan is on the prowl. However, it is disgusting how the Pressitute "journalists" give excuses to the blacks who are rioting, looting, and maiming in London. Look at what they wrote:
"For a society already under severe economic strain, the rioting raised new questions about the political sustainability of the Cameron governments spending cuts, particularly the deep cutbacks in social programs. These have hit the countrys poor especially hard, including large numbers of the minority youths who have been at the forefront of the unrest."
So there you have it.
'Women and Minorities Hardest Hit.'
The thugs scream to give them their welfare or else. Just like unions.
Didn't Glen Beck predict worldwide riots and chaos just recently, because Islam, the Left, and the dysfunctional need disorder because without it they are without power and outside the mainstream?
Global economic uncertainty leads the looters to use their new cell phones to create flash mobs.
And the commies to encourage it.
What we have are 4th generation welfare folks in the USA, who have never had to do anything but collect food stamps, collect welfare checks, get debit cards for "walkin' around money" (aka, for crack purchasing), get free medical care via Medicaid, pay NO INCOME TAXES or SOCIAL SECURITY, get PAID to vote Democrat and keep it comin', live in government housing for free, etc., etc. "Whitey" owes it to them, and it's a "Right", they've been told.....if you get caught, just yell "RACISM", and you are home free.
With the above mentality, when the money from earners runs out, they will head for the suburbs, to TAKE what they think is THEIRS, from "Whitey".....because SHARED SACRIFICE means YOU work and earn, and THEY get the benefits without lifting a finger.
Now, the first time they identify them as "minorities", it comes along with a "white guilt because their welfare was cut" clause.
I agree that unrest is only going to get worse, but the big surge will be in the US and Europe.
This article is one reason why I never ever read or watch the Marxist media, like CNBC, CNN, or PMSNBC.
Only recently did I start receiving FOX news via satellite.
The new service does NOT get CNN or BBC, That is why I bought it.
I live in the Philippines, and never heard of the unrest here.
I had to ask my girlfriend, and she recalls only a labor dispute near Manila at the president’s sugarcane plantation,
certainly not nationwide.
It was little more then typical of a factory strike in the US.
I feel much better living here on Cebu then anywhere in the new USSA.
Found another Beck youtube. I was never a huge fan of this guy, but oh boy - he sounds like he recorded this today.
Guns were taken from the Brits, but that doesn't mean they can't get creative.
Liquor store owners who are in the path of the looters could switch out the contents of the bottles with liquid drain cleaner.
Electrified fences (up the voltage) works with dumb animals, you could fry a lot of these idiots before they caught on.
Would not surprise me if those on the street were into free drugs if they thought that was what they were getting. Thousands of tied off balloons with crushed crystal drain cleaner left on the street would slow down the looters.
Finally, anyone showing up at the emergency room for care could be immediately arrested for crimes against society.
We had better start paying attention. Worldwide anarchy is coming, courtesy of the left. Then Islam is going to jump in and act like it’s the best thing for the entire planet.
American men put out of manufacturing jobs and families during the ‘80s and ‘90s didn’t act that way. Bosses, enjoy your depression caused by political correctness.
John Ball hath rungen his tweet.
Tell it to Wall Street.
Looks like a description of the Venus Project. They make videos like “Zeitgeist” and run campaign adds for Ron Paul.
Here's a look at what's happening around the world and how economic downturns are bringing protestors into the streets.Obama's Fault!!! It's funny, no matter when or where urban violence takes place, we hear that same swill about economic reasons. And it is literally never true -- particularly in any country with a public dole.
The forces of Mordor are on the move.
Send them back to the islands that their parents came from...
Never heard of it. So I looked it up, ROFL. These people do not know enough to know when to walk away from fantasy land. Looking for solutions in all the wrong places and for all the wrong reasons. It only confirms my outlook at humanity at this point. It’s not pretty.
Most of this is dispossessed peoples revolting against the governments that have betrayed them. Native populations have been impoverished by a combination of trade policies and financial industry fraud, and the remaining jobs in their home countries are filled by imported labor from abroad, by people who share no values with the displaced natives. Did they think the people they miseducated and gave no hope of productive employment - the dole being so much more profitable - were just going to disappear? This is the inevitable result of the betrayal of the lower and middle classes.
The looting of nations’ economies for the benefit of a handful of elites is running its full course. People are asking the question why they should follow the law when their leaders do not and their institutions do not. They got no good answer now they’re trying to get a bit of what they could never have in the status quo.
(As an aside, what is going on in Israel is not the same as what you see in the UK, Spain, Greece, Egypt, Syria and other nations. In Israel it’s just a leftist movement trying to capitalize on the legitimacy of the “Arab Spring”.)
And some actually wonder why I’ve been stocking up on ammo-!! Human nature rarely varies-!!
Please do, Grasshoppers.
We've got something saved up especially for you.
I remember telling one of my liberal pals when we first discussed politics about 8 years ago . . . “If we lose the culture, we’ll lose our country”
I could tell it hit home with him. He paused and reflected . . decent guy and I could tell he had been taking things here for granted. He’s still a liberal in his mind, but you should hear him talk now.
