I knew nothing about this proposed demo and to my knowledge all local Southbank bridges are affected...it's ghastly and unbelievably intimidating..wouldn't happen in Spain etc....the people and police would withstand for it!

I see no masks, balaclavas or black flags. so, where you, Paramount, see Anarchists I only witness protesters who are proud to show themselves and be identified publicly. They are rather genteel in their demonstrations and demands.
In general I support non-violent public demonstrations and I support this one in particular.
We older folk must not allow the media and politicians to separate us from the young, who are going to inherit the world we are leaving them, for the young are our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and if we only think of the future of our own kith and kin then we must applaud the enviroment protesters who are, unselfishly, doing it for all of us.
