Protesters in downtown Vancouver looking to “clog the arteries of capitalism” clashed with police in riot gear over the weekend as they marched in the streets and vandalized property. A sharp-eyed photographer shot some amazing photos of the attempted anarchy, as the crowed, mostly dressed in all black everything, broke windows, damaged cars, and dragged free newspaper/mag dispensers into the street, creating some of the weakest obstacles ever. The authorities weren’t happy and reportedly responded with “batons, bullet-proof vests and some machine guns.”
