Photograph gathering on Trafalgar Square

Photograph gathering on Trafalgar Square.

'The use of Stop & Search without grounds for suspicion has been ruled illegal by European Court of Human Rights,' say the organisers. 'This ruling from Strasbourg comes as thousands of photographers are set to gather in London on Saturday 23 January to take mass action to defend their right to photograph after a series of high profile detentions under Section 44 of the Terrorism Act.'

Dontcha just KNOW that the Police are going to be on their very best behaviour, with that many cameras around? :-)
Shame it's at the other end of the country ... I'd have quite liked to have been there ... will be interesting to see what sort of coverage this actually gets, outside of the BJP?

Well, the progressive papers have shown a decent amount of interest in these things.

So, were you there, Eo? A tall-and-silent viking like you should be easily noticed and make quite an impression. :-)
