A professor at the University of East London has been suspended from his position for predicting that  there may “be real bankers hanging from lampposts” at Wednesday’s protests against the G20 economic summit.

Chris Knight, a professor of anthropology, is an organizer of G20 protests in London this week. He told the BBC that if bankers and government ministers don’t “surrender their power, obviously it’s going to get us even more wound up and things could get nasty.”

Knight’s G20 Meltdown is just one of many groups planning actions in London this week, but Knight’s eagerness to make incendiary statements to the media has made him the most quoted figure in the movement right now.

The UEL’s decision to suspend him has confirmed that position.
