The Greek debt crisis may steal the show at the G20 summit but anti-capitalist protest voices are getting louder on the sidelines.
Thousands of demonstrators against corporate greed and tax havens have taken to the streets of the French seaside resort of Nice and other resorts along the coast.
The French Riviera is world famous for its rich and exclusive spots. Today much of it has been transformed into an exclusion zone by a massive ring of security, especially around the summit venue in Cannes.
Crowds are being kept away from the main commercial centre. Security has been stepped up along the French Riviera and Italian border for a week now, with a large number of vehicle checks and passport controls to monitor the flow of people into the region.
The OWSErs in Cannes are oblivious to the irony the Western World is broke.
I wonder how they got there.
“The French Riviera is world famous for its rich and exclusive spots.”
So why haven’t these little commies been protesting there before today?
