    Fash on March. Confronted them but yoghurt weavers intervened. Awaiting reinforcements.

    Why these people think that the government are going to listen to them I'll never know, it's as if the anti-war protests and Occupy never happened, bizarre.

    not-bono-ever Not what they want but what is good for them

    UK - polite witty slogans, a nice cup of tea and humour- nothing is done
    France- CRS, tear gas and massed disroder- something will be done

    The demo ended up at buck palace. They appealed to the queen to assist with their cause. We left.

    Were they actually doing anything arrestable? I thought that was the whole point, rather than making appeals to vintage oppressors.

    If abject begging is an offence they committed it, they're miserable pleaders

    My overall thoughts.

    Allowing fascists to be on the march and stopping opposition to the same by swarming me and trying to appeal to my better nature was shit and politically telling.

    Turning left onto the Mall and not straight up the Charing Cross Road was ineffective.

    Appealing to the Queen to save the planet seemed so naive I am speculating if it was a cunning plan to keep Anarchists off future demos and protect NVDA tactics from June 1999 style efforts.

    5/10
    Could do better.

    From what I saw a 3 is nearer the mark.

    Room for improvement

    It was at least half women (or so it seemed) which was a big plus.

    I was all reminiscing about RTS days so was bound to be a bit meh.

    So was this just a march then? Finishing at Buckingham Palace?

    Excellent work TopCat that was like a live news feed :cool:

    It does all seem tokenistic. But as I do fuck all who am I to criticise.

    Red Sky It was like that when I got here.

    Of what ilk?

    Alt right and fellow traveller. A legal observer mentioned their presence and I went over. Insults and scuffle. Then at least 6 people, thinking about it, all women, got in the way facing me and kept talking in a patronising calm down manner.

    I may have a pic. Let me have a look.
