it comes after a week of intense demonstrations across the world that do not look set to abate anytime soon. once again, thank you for following along and solidarity with all here and across the world fighting against police brutality and racism.
it’s been a day of huge numbers, very long stretches of chanting and rage mixed with small bursts of clashes and violence, ending once again in a kettle and now roving groups of protestors throughout this part of the city.
as the group continues to roam into pimlico and plays cat and mouse with the police who are slowly closing in, it’s my time to depart and head home.
the demonstrators sprint as the police leg it after them. some attempt to get the group to run down a dead end but it’s aborted just in time. group of around 50 -100 continue to move. someone tips over a big bin and attempts to move it to the middle of the road but it’s aborted.
police advance past first barricade and protestors sprint to the next. the riot vans are behind them. protesters split off down a side street
the police are slowly advancing as the crowd falls back from the abbey towards the road blocked road.

police advance and the protest is scatter past the abbey and queen elizabeth conference centre.
protestors have built a barricade and throw projectiles. police in full riot gear hold their line. shouts of black power from the crowd.
projectiles thrown. a huge line of police are getting in formation.
there are further riot vans steaming towards the square along millbank. the crowd runs towards the abbey. protestors have blocked at least 6 vans from advancing and cops swarm out of it. protestors arm themselves with cones and traffic management fences.

the tactic was the subject of a human rights challenge in the european court of human rights in 2011 following the kettling of people in the may day riots of 2001. it was ruled not to breach human rights of protestors.
... leave. depending on whether they have certain public order sections in effect this is either lawful or not. kettling was famously used at the student protests in 2010 where students (including yours truly) were held for up to 9 hours.
to those asking in the replies - kettling is a controversial containment tactic used by the police whereby they surround a crowd or group and refuse to let them leave for extended periods of time. sometimes they attempt to make you give your details before you’re allowed to...
still hundreds outside of it, tempting fate and pushing up against the police lines.
in previous demos this week, the police have surprised the crowds with the kettle. it’s clearly had a lasting impact bc for the last couple of hours ppl have been consistently warning of an incoming kettle. when it came, they were ready which means it’s been less successful today
desperately trying to avoid getting kettled got a fourth time in a week(!) so i’m staying back off of whitehall. it’s hard to see what’s going on but you can hear the noise of the jeers and chants above the din of the helicopter hovering overhead.
yeah here are still hundreds outside the kettle at the parliament square end of whitehall. there are riot police poised around the square to run in and kettle them too.
they’ve just kettled the protest. i managed to get in the other side of it by legging it just as the closed it off. fireworks and projectiles thrown. running battles in the street outside of kettle. hard to say what’s happening in it but i can see fireworks going off.
batons drawn and scuffles. someone is shouting “we are the 99%, they are the 1% - there are more of us than there are of them”
they’ve formed a line across the street outside downing street as some kneel in front of them, others shout. another line arrives and chaos erupts again. fireworks are being thrown and exploding in and above the crowd.
as a group of riot police start moving chaos erupts again as they are hit with a barrage of projectiles. people are running in front of them screaming “stop throwing shit”
and here at downing street a crowd of around a hundred is sat on the ground chanting “black lives matter”
back up at the street between the treasury and the foreign office a small group still faces off with lines of riot police
tensions boil over within the crowd as a couple of protesters square up to one another. people around calling for calm and peaceful protest. there are perhaps a few hundred people left in the square.
