DSEI East Gate blocked

ExCeL, London. Sat 9 Sep 2017

 



 I go back to the East Gate and find two people are in a lock on

 with police standing tightly around them

 and protesters sitting on the blocked road

 A police officer hammers a chisle into the concrete around an arm of one of those locked on

 

 

 People hold a religious service on the blocked road

 

 

 The second person in the lock in lies back as police try to free the two

 

 

 An officer tells a woman she will be arrested unless she gets up and leaves the road

 and officers carry away another woman who refused to move

 they handle her pretty roughly as she struggles

 and a legal obsever puts a bust card into her hand as she is taken away

 They take her past a police transport to another van further away

 

 A protester shouts to a police officer on a horse, asking her how she can live with her conscience

One of those who had been in the lock in is led away in handcuffs
