London Hundreds of Thousands march against spending cuts – in photos
Is this something our police in Zambia can learn from. While hundreds of thousands marched against spending cuts in London, no single shot was fired. In Zambia, when just less than 100 protested over the Barotse Agreement of 1964, about 4 people were reported shot dead by our police.
More than a quarter of a million people marched through central London to deliver a powerful message about the government’s cuts in public spending. The generally good-natured mood was soured by violent and destructive attacks on symbols of wealth including the Ritz, banks and a luxury car dealer, and an occupation of the upmarket food store Fortnum and Mason.
