About 50 people gathered at the Kempinski Hotel in London on Friday, 11 May, to show their solidarity with the victims of the G8 raids in Germany last week, and to express their opposition to the G8, capitalism and all that [call]. Kempinski is the hotel group hosting the G8 Summit in Heiligendamm, Germany, next month.
The Met had 'designated' a pen on the opposite side of the street, but protesters refused to be penned in and stayed by the hotel, without entirely blocking the pavement. Some leaflets were given out and not much more happened.. well, apart from the FIT struggling to get good shots of people's faces.

10-05-2007 17:19It has come to our attention that the police are collaring various individuals the consider to be part of the 'riot' in Hyde Park last weekend. This is a cynical attempt by West Yorkshire constabulary to protect themselves against charges of brutality.
