my london diary

march 2001

Old Ford got its name in an obvious way, as the site of a ford over the river Lea. This is the traditional boundary between Middlesex and Essex. Now the boundaries are more complex, and I wandered over many bridges in my walk around the Bow back rivers and on to Hackney Wick and Victoria Park to end at Old Ford.

the Free Tibet campaign organises a number of vigils and other protests, including this march from the Chinese Embassy in Portland Place to Whitehall, in protest at the Chinese occupation of Tibet.

the independent civil rights movement is a coalition of various interest groups organising chiefly around various cases of discrimination, harassment and violence to black people, particularly by the police. Best known is of course the failure to properly investigate the racist murder of Stephen Lawrence.

Other well known cases include those of Roger Sylvester, the Lindo family, Winston Silcott and Harry Stanley.

back to the Thames at Putney for the oxford and cambridge boat race, surely the least interesting of any nationally followed sporting event (except golf), involving as it does, two minor university teams.

of course it it mainly a good excuse for a drink, and the race only diverts attention from this for a few minutes.

watchers on the tow path at Putney were marooned by the rush of water as the fleet of launches following the race swept by on the incoming tide. I had to paddle like these girls (and all the others in the top picture) and the water was dirty and freezing.
