Well, I persuaded Mandy to go out after the demo. Spalders needed no persuading, he was hyped-up on the 400 cans of Coke he drank during the day. And we had a cool time! But today… oh, my legs! Clicky the piccy!
Spalders, Mandy, Sean and I went to the big anti-Trident demo in London yesterday. When I say “big,” there were at least 100,000 people there, judging by the previous marches I’ve been on (though apparently Sky News estimated 150,000). The Met Police estimated 10,000, keeping to their pattern of laughably inaccurate figures. Should we trust a police force that can’t even count?
The protest was huge, the speakers were great, particularly the US speaker from their antiwar movement. It was a knackering day but well worth it. The most heartening thing, as always, was marching alongside tens of thousands of people who want only peace.
