Extinction Rebellion at Marble Arch

Marble Arch, London. Wed 24 Apr 2019


 Polic vans lined both sides of Park Lane

 At Marble Arch people were standing around a tribute to those murdered in Sri Lanka and singing

 One road block remained, at the end of Oxford St

 where several groups had locked themselves together and police were slowly cutting them free

 Police formed a cordon around the people still in the road

 and tried to get the others around to go away

 

 I walked back to Marble Arch

 

 A man was bashing away on the piano

 The elephant went over to a line of police in front of where the stage had been

 

 There were still many tents on the grass around

 

 

 Back on Oxford St, police were still sitting around people who had been arrested

 though it was hard to see exactly what was happening through two rings of police

 

 Again I returned to the Arch

 where the same man was still playing

 'For the Ones Lost in Sri Lanka We are with them'

 a group began to sing and drum - including a figure with a globe for a head

 

And I began to walk down Park Lane, meeting the samba band and others coming from Parliament Square on my way.
