Protesters Are Awesome: Citizens Seize Gaddafi's London Mansion; "We Didn't Trust the British Government"
It's theirs now.
Calling itself Topple the Tyrants, a U.K. group has taken control of Muammar Gaddafi progeny Saif Al Islam Gaddafi's multimillion-pound mansion in Hampstead, London, a tony Inner London suburb. The activists now occupy the property and have taken to the 17-room home's roof with a Libyan rebel flag and several anti-Gaddafi banners. They also have a spokesperson who's talking to reporters: "We didn't trust the British government to properly seize the Gaddafi regime's corrupt assets, so we took matters into our own hands."
Saying it "stands in solidarity with the Libyan people," Topple the Tyrants alleges the British government and British corporations are untrustworthy when it comes to reprimanding Gaddafi's brutal regime.
