Luckily enough nothing was happening to this particular individual.
The anticapitalist block emerged shouting slogans and encouraged people to join them.
They went round the square a bit and then down the stairs to the fountain and around the fountain. They approached the front of the stage and wanted to make a statement about how they were treated by the police on their way to the demonstration, beaten on the underground and penning them in, preventively arresting some italians and greek, and also to draw attention that the police were violently arresting and treating people after the ESF “Storm the Palace” demonstration from the front of Alexander Palace to the Beyond ESF autonomous space, as well as declare their disappointment and the discrimination of non-hierarchical grassroots groups from the process, involvement, organisation and decision making of the official ESF in london 2004.
When they were in front of the stage, the stewards told them to get to the site entrance to let them in to make their statement.
However, when they were at the side entrance they were refused entry by the stewards. People demanded accesss to the stage. At that point the crowd pushed forward and the stewards pushed them back, the fence nearer to the stage marking the side entrance to the stage was pushed over and some people managed to go in the backspace. The police pushed through the crowd behind the stage and more stewards came to re-enforce the entrance. An announcement was made about people arrested at Kings Cross Police station
The situation calmed down. However the police started to make arrests backstage of everybody the found suspicious of potentially having participated at the anticapitalist block.
