Stop Arming Saudi while Yemen starves

Grosvenor House Hotel, London. Wed 23rd Jan 2019



 Police hold back protesters to let people go in to the hotel where the Aerospace, Defence and Security dinner

 was taking place.

 

 The Grim Reaper was taking part in the protests

 

 A police officer holds one of the protesters as people go past

 

 A woman is confronted by protesters

 and a man pushed a protester who is held by police roughly enough to send her flying despite the restraining arm
 of a police officer. A second frame shows her blurred as she falls forward from the blow to her back.

 but she was soon up and protesting again

 as police shepherd more diners past

 

 Some of the protesters decide to sit down

 They make their views clear as people file past into the dinner

 

 Other protesters hold banners and placards

 as people in bow ties make their way in

 past the line of protesters sitting on the ground

 

 

 Hotel security start to manhandle some of the protesters sitting on the pavement

 

 and things get a little rough

 

 

 A protester hangs on to a pillar as security try to remove him

 

 A police officer pulls on the arm of a woman sitting on the pavement

 Other protesters keep up the noise, shouting "Blood on Your Hands!"

 Police drag out protesters

 and drop them into the gutter

 Sometimes the police seem determined to cause some pain as they drag the protesters to the gutter
