The day before people also protested outside the hotel where the IOC Olympic Evaluation Commitee were staying, hanging banners and making lots of noise. There was also a bicycle ride noise protest [report and pics].

The network NoLondon2012 is concerned about the environmental implications of a London games, the loss of emenities and housing during construction and the diversion of funds from grassroots projects.

The protests follow previous actions in London and the long running campaign against the 2004 Olympics in Athens.
