This morning starting at 7am people gathered at Liverpool st station for the Shut Down the City protest. Complete with a samba band and a massive banner reading All Power ToThe 99%" they set of at around 7.45am, taking the streets marching through the city to the Bank of England. Police repeatedly tried pushing people out of the road, but people just kept on marching.
They eventualy met up with the group of sparks and the electricians supporters at Southwark bridge, with big cheers and shouts of "General Strike!". There was a picket outside the Health and Safety Executive offices and announcements of support from NUJ union at the offices of the Financial Times building opposite. Next up on the picket tour was a Unison line at the London Councils before moving off to Guys hospital next to the shard construction site, and on the the PCS picket at the Tate, before dropping the massive banner of the Millenium Bridge. Loads of support from passing cars etc
