Amazing scenes at POOR DOORS last night……..words and pics by Peter Marshall
The officer at extreme right who had sworn and had then been threatening arrest when a protester swore back was told to calm down and leave the scene, and the other guy then came and asked the protester fairly politely to calm down too. Clearly the guy in charge didn’t want the protesters provoked.
There are a couple of pictures of the argument before this (more when I catch up with My London Diary.) But I think from the start that the police had made it very clear that they were prepared to act if anyone stepped out of line.
The protest attracted a lot of support from people passing by, a couple of whom stopped for a while to take part.
