Police move on anti-capitalist protestors ahead of G8 Summit

Ahead of this year's G8 summit, London police have moved on a group of anti-capitalist protestors named StopG8. Last month the group issued a map of 100 targets in order that people might "show their anger".

Over 100 officers in riot uniforms formed a cordon around a central London building, circling protestors around Beak Street before the protest was due to begin.

2009 saw police make over 100 arrests after protests to coincide with a G20 economic summit in London became violent.

A London police spokesman:

There's a warrant being executed there. Our protest liaison teams are actively working to engage with those wishing to protest so that we can facilitate peaceful protest.
