No Proroge Demonstration – Pictures – Part 2

Most of the demonstrators marched down to Lois Brown’s constituency office for the second half of the demonstration (my leg was killing me, so I drove). Here’s pictures and comments. Note that even though (or maybe in spite of) being told that we’d be coming, Lois wasn’t in.

Here’s the crowd starting to form in front of Lois’s office:

And another picture, a bit closer. By this point I wasn’t moving very fast 🙂

Even Elvis showed up. He was in worse shape than I was, being stuck in a wheelchair.
