The day we kettled New Scotland Yard

Thanks to everyone who turned out on Saturday for the brilliant demonstration against police violence. It was an angry, united protest, and we managed to (pretty much) entirely surround New Scotland Yard!

It was interesting to note the police attitude to the demo. Other than some half-hearted attempts to clear the road outside the Yard at the end, there was little police intimidation.

Have a look at some of the videos of the day below on our YouTube playlist.

Yesterday the campaign had another boost - the lecturers' UCU union is the latest to affiliate nationally!

Our next action will be a protest outside the office of the IPCC on 10 July. More information to follow...
