Latvia Riots Over the Pillage of the Global Pirate Bankers
Police used mace and truncheons to disperse rioters who smashed shop windows and overturned a police van after failing to storm parliament. The violence followed a peaceful rally in which some 10,000 people accused the government of economic mismanagement and demanded new elections.
