German police used water cannon to disperse around 500 anti-capitalist protesters in Hamburg where Chancellor Angela Merkel will host leaders of the world's leading economies at the G20 Summit.
Peter Anderson, EWN UK Correspondent says the protesters have labeled their gathering 'welcome to hell'. Anderson says the protesters are aggrieved because the world is getting too globalised.

According to reports, the Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel was determined to host the summit in Hamburg, a high tech German city to display its ability to tolerate protests says Anderson.
Anderson says climate change and trade are likely to be discussed at the summit, with UK focusing on terrorism.
