Trafalgar Square, London was full of the USC Trojans, University of Southern California Marching Band and very good they were, the weather wasn't very Californian, but they put on a good show with their gruff voiced leader Dr. Arthur C. Bartner who directs thim with a good natured rod of iron.

Thought it about time to join Demotix. USC University of Southern California Trojans football team marching band was in Trafalgar Square today. Very slick they were too. Cheerleaders looked good, the marching was good, the music was good, everything was good. My photographs are good. So now you can buy them on Alamy and Demotix, buy them twice, go on, you know you want to.

Cutting Police by 20% is criminal. Police protest against budget cuts and march in London. Photography Matthew Chattle.

Millbank was awash with off duty police officers who just happened to all bump into each other and decided to take a walk through central London whilst wearing matching caps and carrying banners and t-shirts they happened to have prepared earlier. An amazing sight it was too. Very good natured and not a hint of trouble......
They were protesting about the proposed 20% budget cuts that are leading to confrontation with the government. They were not on strike as they're not allowed to do so. Cutting police by 20% is criminal

This fabulous picture along with many others is for sale on Alamy Live News at the moment and then as stock in a couple of days.

Occupy London 12th May 2012. Matthew Chattle Photojournalism. Alamy Live News

Saturday 12th May saw Occupy London converge on St Paul's. I caught up with them on Fetter Lane as police lines and Occupy protesters reached a critical point. Drums and whistles were going like crazy and tension and tempers were flaring. A lot of pushing and shoving as police attempted to hold back the crowd from going wherever they were eventually  going. The mood changed from good natured joshing and pushing to a split second later when tempers reached a pitch. Then batons were drawn and it certainly threatened to turn nasty. All pictures are on Alamy as stock now, I always upload to Alamy Live News and I cover as many events and news events in London as I can.

Batons drawn and ready for action, police confront Occupy London protesters on Fetter Lane. ©Matthew Chattle Photojournalism.
