  • Description

    SUNDAY IS DEMONSTRATION DAY IN LONDON. THIS SUNDAY (JULY 7) WAS NO EXCEPTION, TWO DEMONSTRATIONS, BY RIVAL ORGANISATIONS. ONE PROTESTING AGAINST MR. ENOCH POWELL, THE BRITISH CONSERVATIVE MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT, WHO STIRRED UNREST THROUGHOUT BRITAIN WITH A RACIAL SPEECH EARLIER THIS YEAR. THE OTHERS WERE DEMONSTRATING IN FAVOUR OF MR POWELL.

    BOTH SIDES TRADED BLOWS IN THE SHADOW OF THE HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT AFTER LEFT WING STUDENTS BROKE THROUGH A POLICE CORDON PROTECTING THE ANTI-IMMIGRANT MARCHERS.

    SEVERAL PEOPLE WERE INJURED, SEVERAL ARRESTED. IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MELEE THE BRITISH COPPER (POLICEMEN). HE DIDN'T TAKE SIDES. ANYONE CAUSING A BREACH OF THE PEACE WAS ARRESTED. BUT UNLIKE THE OTHER SIGHTS OF LONDON IT DIDN'T PAY TO GET TOO CLOSE.
