“Up Yer Bum COP 15!”

Another rare bit of humour in Saturday’s Climate march, with a banner from the “Polartariat”:

Along with a rather nice polar bear.

The anti-capitalist block joined the march at Berkeley Square and for a hundred yards or two this banner was at the head of the march, until stewards and police managed to persuade them to roll it up and go back and join in further back.

Although the block apparently had three banners, I only saw one other, with around twenty or thirty people, including both anarchists and a few Stalinists carrying flags with the message ‘For Bolshevism. The group left the climate demonstration before ‘The Wave’ around the Houses of Parliament.
