Report from Kennington Park - 8 pm, Monday

According to latest reports, around 500 people have been pushed into Kennington Park by riot police in an attempt to clear the streets from the remaining protesters who had marched there from the Guerrilla Gardening action in Parliament Square. The mood in the park is increasingly becoming tense due to the police tactics of pushing the people inside the gates towards the centre of the park.

Several minor disturbances between the protesters and the police have ocurred, which, as we are told, resulted in police marching into the park trying to disperse the crowd. Large numbers of police horses have been used in these attempts. At present, the situation is fairly calm, with 150 demonstrators having started a huge football match and police standing around, not really knowing how to deal with this reaction.
