Protesters act out the death of patients and the National Health Service during a street performance held outside the Department of health in london today.
Today a small group of protesters gathered outside the Deaprtment of Health in Westminster to highlight their opposition to cut backs and privatisation of the NHS.
The protest was different from all other protests that I have been to, as it was done in the form of a short play, with the vampire Andrew Lansley feeding off death and dying NHS.
A highly original form of protest which was a welcome change from last weeks carnage. The protesters got their message across in a peaceful and highly comical way, finally moving away with NHS written on the floor in fake blood.
They moved across the road to Downing Street and staged a short lay-down protest. The protest was cut short by the arrival of five police cars and two police motorbikes of Diplomatic armed police (two of which had their ID numbers hidden). It seems that peaceful protesters is all our police force can handkle these days. London, UK. 01/04/2011
