Sorry I didnt post much before I'd just got back and needed to sleep after spending hours dancing at the street party that ensued after the march and
Rally Again, Im sorry for the quality of the photos. Tihs is due to the mental condition I was in and the quality of my digital camera!
It was an excellent day. The march started around two O'clock and we reached our destination, Trafalger square, at around six. It was a really long
march but was excellent as very large parts of London were desrupted. We marched past whitehall and Downing street but I'm pretty sure that Bush
wasn't there. He ahd to leave Downing street throught the back exit! What a humiliation!! It was a great atmoshphere and the smell of pot filled the
air constantly. Spent alot of time with the Samba bands that I always see at the London protests ( the most recent of which was the protests against
the Amrs fair in London) It was incredible as we walked past downing street as thousands of usbanged anything we could whilst screaming SHAME ON YOU
at top of our lungs. The police so intimidated as we were staring at them! I didnt get into any fights with police this time round but there was an
excellent moment where, after trying to keep us all pinned into one lane of the street we all broke through the police line and marched into the
on-coming traffic bringing another main London road to a standstill.
The final rally in trafalger square was excellent. The speakers where great and we got a bonfire going with our placards and signs and danced around
all night! A brilliant protest. Met two Kenyan policemen on the train back out of Town and smoked a joint with them! I got him to show us his badge!!
Here is a picture of the ensuing street party. These people where crazy, I liked them + danced with them. Funny, this picture looks really bad but I
think it was kinda like what my vision was like so its seriously cool for me!
So thats essentially my report of the event. It was a brilliant day for all. I wish I had managed to get a few shots of one of the many Bush statues
where burnt and destroyed over the day. The main one was the best as it was made to look like the Saddam Toppling statue thing that happened in
Bagdad. The amount of people who hjad made shrines to pretzels was also brilliant!!
