Around half a million people demonstrated in central London on 26th March against the ConDem government’s cut-backs.
Thousands took direct action against corporate targets. A demonstrator told Indymedia Scotland: “We succeeded in our aim of taking over significant areas of central London. Piccadilly Circus, Oxford Circus and Trafalgar Square were all controlled by demonstrators for a good part of the day.”
On Tuesday university security and approximately 80 police, including a canine unit, police horses and a police helicopter circling overhead from about 10am evicted us from the Hetherington in a heavy handed operation lasting several hours.
