26 March 2011 London Demo against the cuts

26 March 2011 — williambowles.info

According to the organizers there are 400,00-500,000 on today’s march. Not surprisingly there was a massive turnout from UNISON, the public service worker’s union, what with 350,000 jobs destined to be axed. But the BBC just spent the better part of 20 minutes not covering the main demo but a breakaway group of ‘anarchists’ who trashed some shops and a bank, then UK Uncut occupied Fortnum & Mason’s. As I write the fun continues with a giant ‘Trojan Horse’ burning in the middle of Piccadilly Circus. Sorry no photos, watch the BBC.

Here’s the best banner, supplied by UNISON of course:
