As Bush was flying in to London protests were already underway. Over one thousand people marched on the US embassy (via the offices of ExxonMobil) in the Burning Planet March Against Bush. Focussing on climate change the march was noisy and bright and gained support from many passing by. Outside the US Embassy speakers including former Environment minister Michael Meacher, Tony Juniper (Director, Friends of the Earth) Stephen Tindale (Director, Greenpeace)and others all lined up to denounce the destructive policies of the Bush administration and its corporate sponsors.

Meanwhile in Brixton yet another statue of George Bush was being toppled by campaigners, this time complete with mock trial where he was found guilty of a number of charges - see report and pics [ 1] [2].

Earlier in the day another naked protest against Bush took place at the Tate spelling out the words 'Bush Go Home', while students at University College London have occupied part of the university. The London School of Economics Student Union also voted to support the next three days of protests.

It did my heart good to see pictures and read articles of the protests in different parts of Britain. I saw people in your country protesting like I have against this horrible war. Thanks so much.

The 43rd pigscum leader of the illegal colony in the west has just woken up, in the arms of Charles the horse sucker. The family reunion after almost 300 years was clebrated with an all night orgy of cocaine and perverted sexual acts.

Remember the children starving to death all around the world.
Remember the children blown to pieces around the world.

Regime change!

Bush shows the world his version of freedom. Free speech zones, no access, excessive police presence.

George Bush has hijacked America and is spreading hatred through the world using our name.

We must resist!!
