"Event for all"
Migrant workers and support groups
Mayday - i'm on top of it!!
Shots for the people - at canary wharf
Mocking capitalism's obsession with profit, power and greed!
Beach party to round off the day...
Later the Space hijackers event of Dancing in The Streets started at 5pm. Around 10 or so suited and booted folks began to sing close to the entrance of Canary Wharf shopping centre, much to the bemusement of city-folk in the promenade cafés.
More and more suited revelers joined in chorus to the “yellow submarine”! and other such popular anarchic theme tunes!!?? from the distributed song-sheets, initiated mad conga dancing and became human maypoles.
The police were on point, ready for something much bigger that the performance art worship to the sun going down on black heart of capital. Most spectators were confused at worst, at best joining in and provided with light refreshments in the form of shots and ice lolly's by the event participants. A small samba band came to enliven the atmosphere towards the end. Around 5:45 however there was one arrest, for what is not yet clear. After the arrest the party moved off towards the shoreline of the Thames for a impromptu beach party, however again along the way another 2 people were arrested, the reasons why, unclear. With an escort of police folks were still dancing and enjoying themselves on the beach after 7pm.
