This picture collage is from the protest last Saturday 16 Feb at the Excel Centre against plans to hold the biannual DSEI (Defence & Security Equipment International) Arms fair in September.
The Newham Executive Mayor, Rokhsana Fiaz and local MP, Lyn Brown turned up to support protestors as did many local Councillors.
It was a largely a friendly musical protest apart from some "disagreements" with Excel security about handing out leaflets and where to stand.
I love the picture (lower middle) where we are singing protest songs but Joshua, the young son of Newham Councillors, Carleene & Daniel Lee-Phakoe, is pictured sticking his fingers in his ears at our noise, therefore making his own protest.
