Tens of thousands of people voiced their anger at the world economic crisis in London's financial district Wednesday, one day before a summit by leaders of the G20 countries in Europe's financial capital.

Protesters accused bankers of "robbing" the economy and a few hundred people smashed the windows of the Royal Bank of Scotland, whose CEO retired last year with a big pension despite the fact that the bank was nationalized to be saved from collapse.

Four different groups tried to organize one large march at the narrow corner of the Bank of England on Threadneedle Street.

The groups were divided into "horses," the Red Horse protesting war, the Green Horse against climate chaos, the Silver Horse against financial crimes and the Black Horse against land enclosures.
