Three protesters have come on motorbikes
A protester has a sign against the many fake companies with 788-790
Finchley Road as their address - and steal from pension funds'.
It was described as "a global asset-stripping £multi-billion
money-laundering operation on an industrial scale being carried out by
MPs, Lords, Knights, Dames, celebrities and sportsmen" with over over
