Had been to the shindig in Trafalgar Square on Saturday 26th March and the police action there. It was scarry getting pushed and shoved in front of the police lines. Then, behind the police lines, getting all sorts thrown in my direction inc. a lot of bottles. I was grateful for the donation of my shiny new hard hat!

The following Saturday, walking across Market Square in Nottingham I shared in viewing this spectacle.

Like many others there, I found it hard to believe what I was watching. 

I have to say after the previous weekends stress, it offered some most welcome relief.

I compare and contrast :-)
