About 200 people rallied today at Rose Court after it was announced that there will be no prosecution of Ian Tomlinson’s murderers. Quite a few people took the opportunity to express their anger and grief, about Ian Tomlinson and everyone who has died at the hands of the police. Then the crowd took to the streets and after a short halt at Bank went to Cornhill to have a minute of silence in memory of Ian Tomlinson.

“No justice, no peace, fuck the police!” roared out continuously from the lively crowd as it made its way across Southwark Bridge and into the City of London, blocking busy roads as it went and leaving office workers gawping in surprise.

The police held back, no doubt under strict instructions not to create a PR disaster by breaking any heads – this time.

With an excellent selection of speakers at the meet-up point, this was an empowering and badly needed action.

It is worth noting that the banners, including a very prominent one declaring “Fuck the law, not the poor” sparked a number of supportive honks from passing lorry drivers at Southwark Bridge. The tide of public opinion is definitely on the turn…
