Blood of Our Children - XR

Downing St, London. Sat 9 Mar 2019



 One of the two marches to Downing St halts on Whitehall

 

 Young people hold posters at the front

 A line of people carry buckets of fake blood. They intend to get arrested for throwing it on the street

 At Downing St the other march has arrived and is waiting for them

 A woman rings a bell - when she stops the the pouring of the blood will begin

 People stand ready with their buckets of fake blood

 and the second march arrives with more people with buckets

 They stand ready, waiting for the signal (and trying to move photographers who are in the way back)

 

 

 The first bucket is poured, and others walk out to pour their buckets

 

 followed by a second wave

 

 and a third

 the blood drains across Whitehall

 and the speeches begin. All fo the first speakers are young people

 

 

 

 

 

 People stand and listen in silence

 

 A young pregnant mother speaks

 and girl who I think was nine

 A very articulate young man

 a young Muslim woman

 a pair of young students

 

 

 

 Those who had poured the fake blood sit patiently waiting to be arrested - but police took no action

 

 

 

 

 Rebel for LIfe - fathers and children

and a grandmother speaks
