Protests hit CBI meeting

Britain's fat-cat business men were shaken up after days of protest at the CBI Conference in Manchester. On Sunday 24th November around a 100 people at an anti- war demonstration succeeded in pushing past police lines and into the conference centre.

Striking firefighters were out in force on Monday to make their anger heard at the conference, linking their call for £8.50 an hour for an emergency service to the fat wages earned by business 'leaders'.
And on Tuesday activists found their way past 'strengthened security' and covered the BP stand and its executives in fake blood. Report and picture.
