A Day of Protest
With the recent negative press surrounding the strong armed tactics of the Met police and the anarchistic behaviour of the G8 protesters in London on the 12th June, this body of work was undertaken with the intention of documenting a truthful account the days event to what is quickly becoming the ugly sibling to the G8 summit.
The location of this final protest was to be held at Canary Wharf, London. chosen because of its strong connection with the financial industry. Unlike the previous rally, the police and protesters alike took a harmonious approach to the day’s events and even with feelings surrounding previous rally still very much alive, the day ended peacefully and without the need for direct police action.
The 2013 G8 Summit was to be held in Belfast between the 17th – 18th June . The documented event was held on the 14th June 2013.
