Frankfurt on lock-down as over 5.000 police are deployed in an unprecedented operation to keep protesters out of the city and away from the banks.

The atmosphere here in Frankfurt is tense. The police is omnipresent. The sound of sirens permeates the city streets. As I write this, some thousands of protesters are huddled together at the university, pitching tents or simply squatting a place on the ground to try and catch some sleep before tomorrow’s big actions. But as the activists here prepare to physically block the headquarters of the European Central Bank, the police already seems to have done the job for them.

The entire city is on lock-down. Roadblocks sever the main traffic arteries Continue reading Hundreds arrested in massive crackdown on #Blockupy
