Sunday Mail (UK) - - News - Tom Pil­grim

Hun­dreds of peo­ple marched against aus­ter­ity yes­ter­day in a “yel­low vest”in­spired protest.

The Bri­tain Is Bro­ken demon­stra­tion, or­gan­ised by The Peo­ple’s Assem­bly Against Aus­ter­ity, de­manded a gen­eral elec­tion.

Crowds in Lon­don, in­clud­ing pro­test­ers who had come over from France, marched from BBC Broad­cast­ing House to a rally in Trafal­gar Square.
