On Wednesday night, individuals supportive of the popular struggle in Oaxaca and in opposition to the state's wholesale assault on the community visited the Mexican Embassy in St George Street, London. Balloons filled with red paint were lobbed at the Embassy's walls, doors and stairs, with the symbolic blood spattered across the building's facade.

There were no arrests.

However, it wasn't possible to take any photos. If somebody manages to get any images, please upload them here.

There will be a further demonstration today at 5pm outside the Embassy
