May Day Observations

Not much protest in 2004.

Some years anarchists have hijacked the annual labor protests at Trafalgar Square, leading to ugly confrontations with police. In 2004 it was not such a disruptive event.

There were policemen and demonstrators present, but things were calm. Flags and banners were waved. Protesters shouted and chanted. Policemen leaned on a wall and watched.

Looking at this view it hardly seems like there was a May Day labor protest going on. (Around the corner there was more visible protesting, but nothing violent.)
