Manchester March Photo’s 29th Sep


Bit late in the day but here’s some photo’s from the Manchester March back on the 29th Sep. That’s the march of 50,000 that you wouldn’t have known had happened if you’d watched the BBC news!

These two paintings were displayed by a bloke on the street at the start of the march – Creative Activism in action!

These two are photo’s of one of several metal kettling walls that were set up ready for action in case things got out of hand. I’d never seen anything like this before. Unbe-fucking-lievable. You can see the bloody thing is on wheels and can be pushed down the street into a crowd forcing them back. There are slots in the front for the police to fire tear gas etc through into the crowd. Thank God we live in a free country…
