Spanish embassy, Belgrave Square, London. Tue 16 Sept 2014
We are waiting quite a while for the people who have the banner to arrive - it seems they have got lost on the way
There are a few posters about Alfon in Spanish
Alfonso Fernández Ortega is the son of Elena Ortega, a well-known leftist activist
Finally the people arrive with the banner and the group pose for pictures in front of one of the embassy buildings
holding up a poster 'Alfon Libertad'
The banner is in English 'Freedom For Alfon'
There isn't much wind and the Spanish flag hangs limply from its pole behind the protesters
There are other protests across Europe on the day before Alfon's trial starts
There are a couple of speeches about Alfon's arrest and his framing by the police because of his political actvity
and the political activity of his mother Elena Ortega, a well-known leftist activist in Madrid
