People were playing games, doing combo dancing, praying to consumerism and money and generally mocking capitalism's obsession with profit, power and greed. A samba band was also present adding some festive beats to the event. City workers and passers by were quite amused with the event, although they didn't join in mass :-) The event passed peacefully apart from the fact that apparently one party goer was arrested whilst the crowd was at Canada Square. Eyewitness reports confirmed the fact that there was an incredible amount of police in and around the area (hundreds of police and security guards were the exact words)
The crowd eventually decided to move towards a Thames' beach near by, were the party is still going on as I write this. Some of the party goers are even having a swim in the Thames! Police seems to be on the stand by and looking at the crowd from the promenade. There is also a report that another protestor (maybe two) has been arrested whilst in the beach or in the way to the beach. It seems therefore that at least two arrests have taken place, but we wait for confirmation on this.
We expect that further reports and photos of the event will be published in due course.
That's all for the moment
