Hundreds of masked protestors took to east London's streets and attacked the recently opened cafe that serves bowls of cereal

Hundreds of anti-gentrification protestors made their feelings very clear about Shoreditch's cereal cafe, Cereal Killer, over the weekend – by splattering it with paint. 

 

The anti-capitalist group was looking to highlight the effect of house prices on working class people in the capital and took to the streets of Brick Lane, London.

With some wearing masks, they targeted the "hipster" hangout owned by Belfast-born brothers Gary and Alan Keery. Riot police soon arrived at the scene, though not before punters in the eatery witnessed a pretty alarming sight.

 

"Tonight we were attacked with paint and fire," said the brothers, via their Twitter account
