On Thursday, German police used water cannons as they clashed with violent anti-capitalist activists who threw smoke bombs and other objects while protesting the G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.
President Donald Trump and other leaders of the Group of 20 top industrial and developing countries arrived Thursday in Hamburg as police in Germany’s second-biggest city braced themselves for a major protest by anti-globalization activists.
The violent protesters titled their event, “G-20: Welcome to Hell.”

On their official website page, the anarchist thugs warned its members concerning police tactics and how to avoid the police.
We are firmly assuming that the cops, as announced, will carry out so-called pre-controls during the summit and so also before our demo. This means that they will try to search your bags and you for „dangerous items“ as well as „protective clothing“. These include e.g. protectors, helmets, but also hose cloths, etc. This practice is so far not practiced in Hamburg and is intended to be an intimidation attempt and an authority demonstration. In other cities, this practice is already repressive normality. We do not want to accept such controls and we will resist them! So do not just walk in affinity groups during the demos and actions, but also go there in groups. Take the measures! The larger the groups, the more difficult the execution! We suspect that the controls will take place widely in the area around our showground. Thus, expect controls even if you arrive with the subway on the Reeperbahn etc. Be solid and do not be intimidated! Support people who are to be controlled and block control points!
Hamburg police reported that their spokesperson was attacked and had to take cover. In a statement police said that spokesman Timo Zill was giving an interview along with another officer when he was “severely attacked.” The two cops fled into an ambulance, while their attackers tried to rip the door open. The vehicle was able to escape, police say.
Police estimate the current number of protesters at the G-20 summit to be around 10,000.
