Monday 10 November 2010: An estimated 52,000 people joined the Fund Our Future protest in London. Thousands descended and lay siege to Millbank Tower, the Conservative Party headquarters. Protestors broke through windows, occupied the lobby and rooftop and set fires in the court yard of the office complex.
This video captures the scenes as riot police moved in to push protestors back, using riot shields and batons in a manner that saw the Territorial Support Group (TSG) condemed at the G20 protests.
One scene captures protestors chanting “This is just the beginning”, a stark warning to the government of the further social unrest to unfurl, as the austerity measures take hold and private interests take advantage of the economic climate to gain control, with ComDem approval, of more public services.
