I went to the strike/protest in central london yesterday and took a few photos. it was a mainly peaceful protest and i got some sweet free food from a nice monk. It kicked off a bit later on at charing cross when the police tried to kettle the protest (Mainly people raving in the street and marching past Trafalga square ) All the youths kicked off because they were being pushed whilst trying to avoid the kettle (Some people got dropped to the floor) but the police were really heavy handed and there were loads of them in riot vans and at police cordons so they could easily push people back and separate them. One of the coppers clobbered me in the face when they were pushing us all away from charing cross station. Most these pictures were taken at embankment and charing cross
