Symbol of Capitalism?

From Jakarta to Toronto, big brands like McDonalds, Starbucks, becomes "victims" of people demonstrations and riots. In anger, those brands are symbols opponents hate, fight, then destruct.

Not an exception during G8 and G20 Summits in Ontario, Canada.

in reference to:

"Opponents to the G20 demonstrated during 4 days, the larger demonstration taking place on Saturday 26. A group of 200 to 300 "black blocks" split from the peaceful march and went in rampage throughout the city center for a couple of hours, smashing windows of banks and symbolic stores (McDonald, Starbuck, etc.) and burning down a couple of police cars."
