Pre-March This was the crowd two hours before the march even began.
Sign 1 Creativity abounds...
Sign 2
Scary Protester Fred is so cute; if all the protesters looked like her, I doubt the crowd would have been very intimidating.
Entertainment This guy got up on a bus thingie and played drums for the marchers. Later he was on top of one of the fountains in Trafalgar Square. Impressive climbing skills.
Parliament This is what it was all about. Bush had tried to prevent the march from going by the Houses of Parliament. Protesters won out and responded by screaming at the building. (Note that it's 4:15, and dark. What a pain in the ass.)
The Man This guy cleverly dressed up as W and had these guys standing around him like secret service. There was a Tony Blair too.
Post-March I wish it wasn't so dark! This is from Trafalgar Square, looking back over the solid mass of people stretched to Big Ben and beyond. Crazy.
Statue Here's the giant paper-mache George Bush. I don't think you can see it, but he has a tiny Tony Blair in his pocket.
Toppling This was taken just a second too late. You can barely see him falling over. People were yelling so loudly - again, crazy.
Crowd Eh, this one didn't turn out too well. These are the steps just in front of the National Gallery, packed solid with people.
More Crowd And another, this time from the steps. But I think it's still too dark to see.
Me And here I am in the middle of it all.
