Op de eerste dag van de Olympische Spelen, zaterdag 28 juli, hebben honderden mensen in Oost-Londen een betoging gehouden tegen de dominantie van de machtige corporaties die betrokken zijn bij de Spelen.

De demonstratie is vreedzaam verlopen. Deze eindigde in Victoria Park, waar verschillende toespraken werden gehouden. Waaronder Chris Nineham van de ‘Stop the Olympisch Missiles Campaign’ en parlementslid John McDonnell, van de British Labour Party.

Police on guard outside the Olympic Stadium acted quickly to stop a cycle group holding an unauthorised protest just as the opening ceremony was getting underway.
Several dozen police vans raced to the outskirts of the Olympic Park on one of the main thoroughfares to the venue where members of protest group Critcal Mass were riding in formation.

Police said the protesters had permission to hold a demonstration in south London, but on condition they do not cross north of the River Thames.
