The police turned up and, incredibly, told us that they were going to impose section 14 to get us over the other side of the road. We had no megaphone, we were not shouting, we were not chanting and there was only 3 of us! All we were doing was holding placards and handing out leaflets. Naturally this outragious section 14 was disobeyed by the protesters and, despite shallow threats of arrest, the police did not have sufficient courage in their convictions to follow their threats too, telling us eventually that they would allow us to protest on the AZ side of the road. We finished the demonstration at 9:30am very pleased with how the demonstration went. We will be doing far more early morning demonstrations after the success of this one.
SHAC London - you have to get up very early in the morning to catch us!
