Russia Stop the Killing, Leave Syria

Russian Embassy, London. Sat 10 Feb 2018




 The Russian Embassy is actually down this private street where protests and photography are both forbidden

 but the legation is on the main road

 behind tall gates with the double-headed eagle

 Protests take place on the other side of the road

 'Child-killers' Russian air raids have targeted hospitals and medical teams

 A poster shows a young woman killed by Russian airstrike - and a family home demolished killing the whole family

 the message 'War madness needs to stop!'

 Assad & Putin - Chemical Childkillers - a placard held by a man in a Syrian Skull mask

 Stop the Syrian Genocide. A woman holds the Free Syrian flag

 Others have posters calling for Assad and Putin to be brought to justice for their war crimes

 

 

 'Enough With Assad'

 

 

 

 Cold rain was falling steadily on the protesters - and me

 
     
 

 

 

 

 

 I went to photograph the embassy building across the main road

 with its double-headed eagle on the gates and the wall. The two police officers came to talk to me and asked

 me politely if I could stop as they get complaints from the Russians. I'd taken the pictures I wanted so agreed.

 and went back across the road to the protesters

 
     
 
     
 

 
     
 

 

 

 

 I stayed for around an hour, but was getting too cold and rather wet

so said goodbye and left for home.
