The London org as I saw it when I
arrived. I was kind of impressed with the clam activity, band and all,
and the amount of clam "counter-protesters". There were roadworks
going on, so half the road was blocked off in front of the org. This
gave a much needed shelter from the traffic.
Front of Org with band and
clams. Opinions on the band varied; I thought that they didn't
really swing, and they were going too fast during the slow
numbers - no soul, in other words.
Street crossing in front of
org. Since we could shelter along the road blocks, we were well-placed
to harass ('scuse me, inform) the pedestrians. Seen in the
middle is the OSA-type who obviously didn't get enough sleep.
Demonstrators across the
street. We were so many protesters that both sides of the street
had to be taken into use.
Snap! Snap! goes the clam. A
unique and demonstrative way of highlighting one's feeling about the
mollusc descent myth. If my jaws hurt, is because I'm laughing
too hard... The on-looking clam doesn't quite know what's going
on. Another 300k$ and he'll be right clued in.
Good old Jacques. Seeing how he
had just taken a picture of me, I thought that I'd return the
compliment. Such a nice-looking fellow, he's rumoured (?) to have been
in G.O. B1 in the good old days and presently head of OSA Invest
Europe. The on-looking foot-clam is looking kind of grim - I don't
know what it is with those people...
Another protester, slightly
apprehensive about being photographed. He should have been able to
tell by the class of my camera that it was all friendly fire. This
protester is sporting a Flubbard Electro-muggo-meter, the
latest device for lightening your pockets. The T-shirt is also highly
Dialogue across the street between
OSA-type and protester.
The orderly retreat. After a few
hours in the rain, we'd had it, and headed for the pub around the
The Merry Gang. YHN second from
left, and a few bad-ass SPs (go, Bonnie, go!)
