Large demo against budget cuts in London today

Half a million people marched through London protesting the draconian budget cuts spearheaded by the tory-liberal government under orders of the IMF. 

The demonstration was called by the Trades Union Congress (TUC), the largest union of England. 

The demo was peaceful except for some very minor incidents, including a sit-in at Fortnum & Mason department store in protest for tax cheating by big business (organized by UK Uncut).

75 people have been arrested according to police sources, most of them seem to be victims of police repression at the peaceful sit-in at Fortnum & Mason.
