"Visibility Policing" on March 19th Anti-War Demo in London

20-03-2005 15:08

Line at Piccadilly Circus 1 (police, barriers, vans)
Quite a few people I spoke to on the large anti-war protest on Saturday March 19th 05, remarked on the style of policing deployed for the march.

While they were not criticising the actions of any police officers, they were keen to point out that there was an increased level of close policing along the route and the increased use of police vans to create road block barriers, both en route and at Trafalger square, where the march ended.

50,000 - 80,000 march to bring troops home

19-03-2005 23:22

It was the usual numbers game, organisers hyping the figure to 200,000 while the police play the figure down to 20,000. The media then talk about the different claims instead of the issues... just like me!
