Police, Protesters Clash Outside G20 Summit

By Dipo Olowookere

As the G20 Summit prepares to officially kick off tomorrow, Friday, July 7, 2017, in Hamburg, Germany, demonstrators have stormed outside of the venue of the meeting to march against the United States President, Mr Donald Trump.

The protesters are against the anti-globalisation stand of the American President.

In May 2017, Mr Trump announced the withdrawal of the United States from the Paris Climate Accord, prompting outrage across the world.

On Thursday evening, police in Germany clashed with the anti-globalisation protesters, using water canon to disperse them.

Thousands of people converged outside the G20 Summit to register their grievance against the American leader.

It is believed that more people will join the protest on Friday when the 20 most powerful countries in the world congregate in Hamburg for the summit.

Also, Mr Trump will meet face-to-face with the Russian President, Mr Vladimir Putin and it is not clear if the US President will confront his counterpart with his country’s alleged meddling into the American election in November 2016.
