    I went by Waterloo bridge this evening. People turning up with rucksacks. They are going to sleep out tonight.

    So yes imo same locations tomorrow.

    Going to take them some ( vegan) food. Soya milk. No cows:D

    Waterloo bridge has been turned into a "Garden Bridge". :thumbs:

    Its very well organised. Kitchens, toilets, and entertainment.

    Lot of older people. Noticed some had quaker badges.

    Heard someone say its mainly the older people manning the edges of protest.

    Another group called Green Anti Capitalist Front had separate protest in the City.

    looks like police are moving in on Waterloo Bridge and telling anyone who doesn't want to get nicked to move to Marble Arch, presumably same at other places too if they are still going.

    They made a big impact on London and beyond and I can't see the police wearing this for several days. Given many are prepared to be nicked it will take a while and a lot of doing.

    What will they need? I was going to pop by and bring some supplies but am not sure what they might need...

    Past experience of sit-downs like this tells me the best things to bring are sandwiches, and alcohol gel for hand cleaning. For anyone really committed to bringing gifts, dry blankets / foil blankets (unsure about plastics etc in this context but still) will almost certainly be welcome.

    I was going to add also bottles of water, but I feel in this particular case that might create conflict as much as slake thirst. But if anyone can drive a 1000-litre water bowser down to any of the sites I reckon they'd be hero of the day :D

    Miss-Shelf I've looked at life from both sides now

    Waterloo more arrests just now
    Met want to consolidate eveyone at Marble Arch
    All sites thinned out over night ...can anyone do an evening or 1am shift at sites (Not all arrest roles e.g. stewards, legal observing, welfare, tea/water provision)

    Great need for bike and trailer going between sites and anyone who could go do water runs in early hours of morning would be v welcome at any sites

    Well I will go and have a mooch later when work is done.

    Rumours abound that tomorrow people will be gluing themselves to the outside of trains.

    souljacker A bit of skullduggery

    I was working at the NT all day today, saw the police dragging off protesters around lunchtime. The crowd was smaller when I left about an hour ago but still there and bridge still well and truly closed.

    I saw something on Twitter (I think, maybe on here) where someone was pointing out that, due to police cuts, they haven't got the resources to deal with this at the moment. I have to agree. There were hardly any coppers on the south side of Waterloo bridge. I've seen more FIT coppers at football than the combined amount of normal filth on the bridge today.

    it was thinning out on Waterloo this evening. Plus they were calling for help from that lot to join Oxford Circus. Police will go in tonight maybe. Authorities are rather worried about provoking too much given the threats to glue hands to Tube trains tomorrow morning.

    The thing is, even if the police nick people and clear the bridge, the cells will be full with protesters, cops and vans tied up, then 50 people can just go and re take the bridge at 07:45 tomorrow?

    Reports of mass clearances should be balanced vs that old friend, TfL Traffic News, which is one of the best sources of live info about demos. Marble Arch, Hyde Park Corner, Oxford Circus, Waterloo Bridge all reported still blocked.

    Waterloo bridge is very nice music and good vibes..
