London


RIP, originally uploaded by alister.

I joined the 450, 000 who marched in the streets of London to defend public services and oppose the ConDem cuts. A good humoured family day out for ordinary workers. It was the biggest demo in London for 10 years.

Police subsequently attacked the non-violent sit ins by UK Uncut and those partying in Trafalgar Square. Black Bloc types had a ruck, which made them feel good about themselves I guess.

But the real story was the march, and what comes after.

Good analysis by Laurie Penny in the New Statesman and Paul Mason of Newsnight.
