Friday May 28th brought gorgeous weather to Vancouver BC, a perfect day to smash capitalism Over 200 activists met at the Vancouver Art Gallery to protest the G8 University Summit taking place in the aforementioned city. The crew of mostly young people in their twenties walked in mass to the Fairmont Pacific Rim, a swanky hotel with matrix themed security guards and glass wall. This is where the G8 University elites were meeting The local police showed up to protect the rich university delegates, but that didn't stop the protesters from having some fun. A Mexican style g8 shaped pi?ata was hung and one lucky young man took some spirited swings and smashed it to bits But the real fun didn't start until the activists caught wind that a bus full of delegates was taking off to the University of British Columbia for a fancy dinner. The group rapidly blocked the bus preventing the delegates from leaving the area. The police dispensed their violence against several women activists without hesitation. After about an hour, a gang of cops including many undercovers almost equal to the number of protesters pushed through the line, freeing the bus to deliver the G8 delegates to their hot meals. Six activists were arrested, but later released without charges. The rabble rousers declared fridays rebellion a success.
