The day started with a big banner reading Smash Capitalism hung near Tower Bridge and a Critical Mass bike protest.

g20 convergence space- payne house, earl street ec2a 2al
This space is now being squatted as a convergence centre, the space is non-affiliated and welcomes all activist groups (as long as they agree to the 'safer spaces' policy and respect the ideals of the space).
On Saturday I participated in a one-man act of civil disobedience that is not yet reported in any paper to my knowledge. To co-incide with the Put People First march through London I climbed over the railings and into the grounds of the Houses of Parliament/Palace of Westminster.
The Put People First march is now making its way into Hyde Park. The first half of the march showed up about an hour ago, the second half was delayed due to the police joining the march and keeping a slow-moving cordon of cops in front of the anarchist Militant Workers Bloc, presumably to deny them mobility in case they decided to overthrow capitalism today.

Protests at main LSR shareholder and government collaborators.
A different feel for demos today, as SHAC went into SOCPA-zone to demonstrate. Very reluctantly we 'got permission' for our 4 protests, and so we started at Barclays next to the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, just next to parliament.

Anti-deportation campaigners are risking arrest to stop the collective expulsion of approximately 50 Iraqi refugees from the UK. 6 Campaigners have locked themselves to the gate of Tinsley House detention centre at Gatwick airport, where some of the deportees are being held, in an attempt to prevent the forcible deportation.

We started today's London protests against TIAA-CREF at 33 Cavendish Square just off Oxford Circus. This equity fund has over 78,000 shares in torture of innocent animals inside Huntingdon Life Sciences and we were there louder than before to let them know that their investment in animal suffering would not be tolerated.
