This was the most contentious banner on the march with both Metropolitan
Police and XR logos and the message
'Both Working For A Safer London'. Many in XR were upset that the group

pointing out their very different approaches to working for a safer London
rather than suggesting they were cooperating..
Advance publicity for the day had said their would be an act of civil disobedience
at Piccadilly Circus which for some
