Anti war activists blockade Whitehall 28-8-13

A protest called by the Stop the War Coalition against impending military against Syria attracted over 1,000 people. During the speeches people started blocking the road and heavily outnumbered police were powerless to stop them.

The government seems intent on joining a US led attack on Syria despite the absence of any clear evidence that the recent chemical attack on a Damascus suburb was the work of the Assad regime.

A national demo has been called for this Saturday.
