This was to be repeated a number of times, with panicked police retreating up roads only to be reinforced by a few vanloads of police and secure the road. Throughout all this the protestors maintained an incredible cohesion as a bloc, moving steadily (perhaps at times too steadily) and with great solidarity.
However, the cops finally outmaneavered us. As we advanced down an alley, the police baton charged around the corner, and drove us back into a more passive line forming behind us. Now trapped, a number began to seek routes of escape, and a few - perhaps, by now, many - legged it up an alley and out onto the main road.
Reports are now coming in that the bloc has moved to Home Park Square.
