Riots in Central London yesterday

If you are like me and barely follow the news
(except for some major happenings I'd say)
you might happen to come out of the tube station 
and find the city in a state of devastation.
protesters climbing the Eros statue
I knew there were protests going on
but I expected nothing like this when I came out of Piccadilly station.

Anti-capitalist protesters, demonstrating against the government’s public spending cuts,
knocked over  trash bins, setting them on fire, smashed the windows of banks and shops and sprayed anarchist symbols over buildings.
