One person was arrested after the mass today... the cops surrounded us in elephant, started being aggressive and arrested one person...
We were just arriving in elephant and castle and the coppers sent at least 4 police cars to welcome us at the elephant roundabout.
Today saw not only mass protests in London ahead of the G20 summit, but local demonstrations in cities around the UK and across the globe. Under the banner of Fossil Fools Day, activists held protests at banks, energy companies and power stations across the UK, the USA, Canada and South Africa to highlight the twin economic and climate crises.
