Stop Arming Saudi while Yemen starves

Grosvenor House Hotel, London. Wed 23rd Jan 2019



 Police officers appear to be twisting the wrists of one of the protesters rather than simply moving him away

 another is dragged towards the gutter

 The Grim Reaper

 Another man goes into the dinner past the Campaign Against the Arms Trade banner

 

 A man hides is face as he walks towards the entrance

 A woman holds up a poster about arms manufacture Northrop Grumman who train the Saudi military to bomb Yemen

 

 'Selling Weapons = Complicity in War Crimes

 People keep chanting noisily so those inside can hear the protest

 

 Protesters shout slogans

 A police officer points his finger at one of the protesters

 protesters shout at a man going in to the Aerospace, Defence and Security dinner

 Another man pushes his way through

 on his way to the dinner

 More people arrive for the dinner

 

 A protester bands a tambourine

 

 

 A worried looking man walks past a protester with a poster 'Stop Arming Saudi Arabia'

 while anohter seems rather composed as people shout at him

 

 Police start to shif people who have sat on the pavement away from the hotel entrance

 and to move others off the pavement

 protesters stop another who has been sent flying by a police officer

 

 

 Among the protesters are some from Yemen

 

 

The dinner has begun, and although the protest outside is continuing noisily there seems unlikely to be much
 more to photograph outside and I decide it is time to leave
