Violence against peace demonstators
The protest had totally degenerated and I couldn’t see many StW stewards. I don’t know what their strategy was but whatever it was it was failing. I did a lot of running from the cops around Parliament Square as a couple of times I found myself at the front of the crash barriers with my camera.
I don’t know how many people were arrested but there were a number of bloodied demonstrators. I saw cops happily whacking people with their truncheons.
More from Louise on the bloody policing at the Bush demo yesterday.
