indymedia London report: 250 people attended a demonstration at Canary Wharf on Halloween Eve. Anti-capitalist demonstrators made a series of abortive attempts to rush police lines and break through to the offices of Lehman Brothers, a failed American financial services firm at the heart of the current economic crisis (recently bought out by Barclays PLC). Police snatch squads were in operation, and at least one arrest was made.Lehman Brothers' innovative use of financial instruments, and the subsequent global disaster in credit markets, set the scene for the current series of economic bailout packages in the U.S. and Europe, in which working-class and middle-class taxpayers assume the risks for the failed parts of the financial markets which rich people refuse to touch.
