01-04-2009. Una protesta contra la guerra, específicamente contra la guerra en Afganistán, entra en Trafalgar Square, Londres. Fue cronometrado para coincidir con la OCDE y la cumbre del G20. La manifestación en sí fue pacífica, pero grupos aislados de anarquistas causaron problemas en los distritos financieros como protesta contra el capitalismo y la reunión del G20.

The Pavement ArtistOn the periphery of the protest the Metropolitan Police argue the point. The point in question is whether this gentleman is in fact a genuine pavement artist (Asking for money and using chalk or crayon to sketch on the pavement is legal) or whether is simply a beggar. (Begging is illegal) Another pavement artist had hurriedly given him some chalks as the police hove into view.

Al contrario de algunosAl contrario de algunos, no todos los manifestantes eran jóvenes que buscaban problemas. Las personas motivadas por ideales pacíficos y aquellas no engañadas por la histeria popular portaban pancartas y cantaban consignas contra la guerra. Jóvenes, viejos, mujeres, hombres, niñas y niños, todos vinieron.

La protesta llega15:38 La protesta llega a Trafalgar Square. Casi en total silencio, solo el ruido de los paso, y pocos gritaron consignas. La policía está relajada mientras algunos fotografos reúnen copias para las ediciones de mañana.

Este caballero es habitual en protestas y manifestacionesEste caballero es habitual en protestas y manifestaciones, lo he visto y fotografiado en varias ocasiones. Siempre tiene el mismo mensaje, un mensaje novedoso, un mensaje que nadie parece haber intentado todavía.

Not Tried YetThis gentleman is a regular at protest and demonstrations, I have seen and photographed him on a number of occasions. He always has the same message, a novel message, a message that no one seems to have tried yet.

The All CameContrary to some, not all the protesters were youths looking for trouble. People motivated by peaceful ideals and those not hoodwinked by popular hysteria carried banners and chanted anti-war slogans. Young, old, woman, men, girls, and boys they all came.

Doesn't Mince His WordsHe certainly doesn't mince his words. I would have liked to have more time time to talk to this gentleman. To find out why his is so anti-U.S. And learn a little of his life story, but with the drift and thrust of the protest march is was all I could do to keep up. Jun 26, 2020

The Arrival15:38 The protest arrives in Trafalgar Square. Almost in total silence, just the tramp of feet and few shouted slogans. The police are relaxed as a few photojournalists gather copy for tomorrows editions.Jun 26, 2020
