Police in Germany’s financial capital, Frankfurt, have ringed the European Central Bank with metal barricades a day ahead of anti-capitalist protests expected to draw several thousand people.

Members of the Blockupy group say they will try to prevent employees from reaching the ECB building for several hours Friday to highlight what they say is the bank’s role in enforcing the harsh spending cuts introduced to tackle the euro area’s three-year debt crisis.

A second demonstration is planned at Deutsche Bank’s headquarters nearby. …

Blockupy includes people who participated in the Occupy movement, which protested the role of global capitalism by camping out in cities in a number of countries, as well as critics of globalization and members of other left-wing organizations. …

The only imperium that is more anticapitalist than the EU is Red China, really. The EU is Occupy/Blockupy’s great white hope; the only thing they don’t like is the cutbacks, because they sure like the tax increases.

Another way to put all this is “We want socialism’’. “We want someone else to pay our way through life’’. “Feed us, clothe us, give us lots of free stuff or we burn it all down you capitalist bastards’’.
