Several hundred demonstrators marched through Brixton to demand reparations from the UK Government for the actions of the British Empire. The protest was supported by groups including the Afrikan Emancipation Day reparations march committee and Stop The Maangamizi: We Charge Genocide.
The procession was largely peaceful, though there were some scuffles with police after protestors blocked a road leading to three arrests.
