Anti-austerity rioters know as “Blockupy,” (a combination of “block” and “occupy”) clashed with police in Frankfurt, Germany earlier today while protesting the grand opening of the new headquarters for the European Central Bank. From the BBC:

Police cars were set alight and stones were thrown in a protest against the opening of a new base for the European Central Bank (ECB).

Violence broke out close to the city’s Alte Oper concert hall hours before the ECB building’s official opening.

“Blockupy” activists are expected to attend a rally later on Wednesday.

Scenes from the riot show the extent of the damage:

But we’ll end it on this. Capitalism always wins out in the end:

Ha! Ha! Ha!
