Russell Brand At G20 Protests

| Filed under: AnglophiliaPolitikRussell Brand

The usually irreverent Russell Brand was spotted at the G20 protests in London today, Wednesday.

More than 2,000 protesters gathered at the Bank of England.

As these things usually go, a few folks lost their cool and ended up fighting with authorities waiting at the steps. Eleven people were arrested for impersonating police officers when the real police intercepted a mock up armored personnel carrier with several riders dressed in fake uniforms.

When questioned, Russell was reportedly uncharacteristically quiet regarding his intentions there.

He said: "[I'm here for] the same reason as everyone else. I'm just here participating. I'm here to observe and participate peacefully in the protest."

Peacefully is the operative word!

    What an absolute hypocritical douchebag this idiot is. He is participating in a protest against capitalism, yet he has no problem using capitalism to make himself tons of money through his movies! DOUCHEBAG DOUCHEBAG!

    YEA CAPITALISM….



  5. 5

    The same reason as everybody else? That makes no sense since there are about 20 different groups there each protesting for different reasons.

    who is russell brand?



  12. 12

    It was Russell Brand I have watched the news all day as I work about 10 mins away from the riots, and they interviewed him this morning. Perez you need to get up to date there has been over 4000 protesters and they have now broken into the Royal Bank of Scotland and police have been hurt! Very scary!

    Re: favourite-things.tumblr – If you actually read his twitter posts, you'd see he clearly stated he was going to be protesting today. Idiot.



  14. 14

    i'm confused….aren't these chumps usually fighting against capitalism…….shouldn't they be having a pep rally instead of a protest this year?



  15. 15

    Russell Brand is an ass wipe, 2000 people that's it???? that's all the Commie pinkos could get together, I was expecting more, pretty sad showing!



  16. 16

    I wouldn't mix it with Russell Perez, he'd chew you up and spit you out.



  17. 17

    God bless these people taking the time and energy to stand up against the greed of the titans.

    Bravo for Russell!!!

    America is the only country left, who is totally fine with allowing corporations to keep firing/sqeezing out the middle class. All the while, CEO's and other execs are walking away with BILLIONS in bonus money and salary.

    Many of us are NOT ok with that. Greed is being touted as the only solution to the worlds problems, but only in America is that ok.
    The rest of us are up in arms about it and won't go down without a fight.



  22. 22

    what a tool . . .



  23. 23

    Brand is a disgusting piece of Euro trash. With any luck he will be arrested and thrown in jail!



  29. 29

    Euro Trash?????????????? WOW real nice, Russell Brand is so far out of your intellegence radar, you have no idea the education that man has, but then IF you had the an understanding of how education works you would not use terms such as Euro trash. I never adress anyone here on thier comments as everyone has a right to thier own thoughts, but racist comments really are not required to fit in on this site. Cheers..

    What a way to make an impact and to be taken seriously, invite (ex drug addict) Russell Brand to a protest against capitalism. Geez!

    Ah, yes, Russell Brand. I don't know what this protest is about (I haven't read much about it here in the States), but he can re-enact those scenes from "Forgetting Sara Marshall" with me ANYTIME! I think I'll be the first woman to die of an orgasm!

    The village idiot out on a day trip. Goes to protest, and when asked by TV stations why he's protesting can't thing of a single, intellectual argument.

    The under 30's who like this guy/entertainer (?) must be near brain dead. British history has come a long way to ask for comment by this air-head.

    Re: carolineyy
    And what have you ever accomplished? History wasn't created by the people who sat on the sidelines and laughed. They were the ignorant ones and the ones on the wrong side of history, their lives got forgotten.
