Block The Bridge, Block The Bill ... Images ...

On Sunday I, along with 2,500 other people, symbolically (and physically) blocked Westminster Bridge, to raise awareness of the actions being taken by the Coalition Government to break up and sell off parts of the NHS to private organisations, Investment companies and hedge funds.

Despite a very minimal police presence, the day was upbeat and fun, lots of music and dancing, and lots of events happening in groups on the bridge, including a London Occupation General Assembly and a Comedy Workshop with Josie Long and Mark Thomas talking about his Peoples Manifesto.

There is a gallery of images here on Picasa.

The next step (ala Occupation of Wall Street) is to occupy the London Stock Exchange. Read here for more.
