they're not arresting yet but a lot of even liberal protesters are pushing back

police brutality 

these appeals to the police to just play nice are just.... so fucking naive

the Trafalgar camp is being torn appart. gonna guess by tonight all the camps will be gone

the current plan is to rebuild the camp and reconsolidate resources and manpower

the police have only taken the road itself so far, the square holds and people are moving tents further back towards the national gallery

idk how long they'll hold Nelson's column, feels like this is the attack to take it all

they're still trying to fucking argue with the bastards in blue

the big tents that house a band, the science tent and the intro tent are all still up

some guy is confronting a cop and I think he's about to be arrested. cops aren't you're friends, you can't reason with them, they're the mindless foot soldiers of the state, they're drilled to have no brain and no concience

the raid seems over, I think they just wanted the road.... for now

anti cop solidarity is high, heard and shouted a few "all cops are bastards"

aaaa I just want a megaphone right now to scream about the cops at these liberals

this is all so much more than it was at the last rebellion week, shit is bigger and the fights are harder. nobody is applauding the police today

morale remains surprisingly high as they march down towards Parliament street drumming and chanting

although many tents are gone, a lot still stand and no roads are open to traffic despite all police efforts

fucking bastards, I spent ages helping put those up on monday

at least the science bois are still here. love those guys

I don't even know what camps are left. Westminster Abbey seemed ok, but that was 4 hours ago, 2 hours ago saint james park seemed about to fall so I moved, home office camp was due to march out at lunch time to idk where but I haven't seen them? maybe they haven't left yet? Trafalgar camp is damaged but stands for the mean time

all I can hopw is these raids amount to some radicalisation. libs used to applause the cops, then they'd just chat to the blue vests, now they're getting mad. they can see the voilence the state intends to employ to stamp XR out, and that everybody who reasons with the police gets nowhere. people haven't given up, I can only hope this leads to a harder fight in the coming days. the rebellion isn't due to end, *eye roll* I know..., until the 19th and I think they intend to be here in some capacity every day

police have all the tents here, people are trying to ask nicely for them back -_-

pigs are allowing access to tents and contents within. but I doubt they'll just let the camp be set back up again

ok, so they're letting people empty the tents and get their shit, but a van is coming to take every confiscated tent until after the protests

food 

protesters have started chanting "who's tents? OUR TENTS!" at the pigs guarding the tents

I FEEL CONFLICTED. the climate change deniers gendered me as ma'am.... but they're bastards killing millions with their anti science bollocks

I just realised... I haven't seen ONE copy of the socialist worker in all 3 days. THAT'S why these actions have energy, the fucking swappers aren't here

for some context, the SWP are trotskyists who just drain the life from everything, as trots often do

3 vans, all went from behind the national gallery around Trafalgar square and off towards Leicester square. they're gone

the space in front of the national gallery is just full of art, everywhere you look. every wall, paving tile, statue, there's a piece of art. all of it os respected and adored. this is what happens when people own the streets, we make them into our own, into a place full of art crying for change and solidarity

they're choreographers dancing in a very elaborate routine to singing in the raib sung by just some guy

THIS WHOLE SPACE IS JUST FULL OF ART EVERYWHERE YOU TURN

this is from yesterday, the symbolism is a little... heavy handed I'll grant you

we're all just dancing, making art, enjoying ourselves. ain't no stoppin us now is blasting. there's a genuinely great atmosphere

@CornishRepublicanArmy Oh, that's cool, they're just arranged in a weird fashion that gives impression there's a deeper meaning to it. The artist deserves more!
