One thing, (among several things), I found interesting is the preplanned positioning of armed security for the “celebration”, tanks, etc. and yet the People still showed up to march and protest.
ECB Grand Opening with Tanks; Apparently they knew their grand plans were unacceptable…
I see this as a very strange “Grand Opening” and commencement of a new building, a wonderful form of institutional governance “for the people”…
A paid-for-by-the-taxpayer office tower for the ECB, accompanied by military tanks and forces to protect bankers.
Here is “In Your Face Evidence” that the police and militaries are policy enforcers and security for the money masters.
Deny this only as an act of Willful Ignorance…
Institutional governance and the People’s freedom/prosperity are in conflict.
This is ugly truth.

Armstrong Economics Reported:
Convoys of police vans, water cannons, tanks, heavy clearance equipment and wheeled APC all surrounded the area expecting a Russian invasion of something..For two days, traffic chaos has been at historical highs that may have exceeded the chaos Obama creates when he want to play golf. The ECB appears to have intentionally tried to intimidate the population to suppress protests given the degree of their unpopularity. They spend $1.4 billion for their new tower and protesters still appeared.
[…] believe it or not, the ECB imposed an exclusion of the press. The ECB has decreed that their opening ceremony news agencies are permitted, but not newspaper journalists. Curious. The newspaper embargo raises the question of exactly what is behind this authoritarian show of force in the heart of Germany?
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-03-18/ecb-besieged-by-protests-as-draghi-celebrates-1-4-billion-tower “Police deployed water cannons to restore calm and keep the demonstrators at bay in the area surrounding the 1.3 billion-euro ($1.4 billion) tower, after setting up barbed wire and road blocks. ”
“The police estimated about 10,000 protesters would descend on the currency bloc’s financial capital and home of the common currency under the Blockupy banner, and several thousand police officers are on duty. Demonstrations and sit-ins are planned at several locations throughout the city by groups and organizations sympathizing with the plight of Greece.”
