Around 12pm on Thursday 28th April 2011 the second round of protests against Tescos got violent. The violence was initiated after protesters left the area in front of Tesco and walk down towards the centre of town, only to quickly double back and run up Stokes Croft to avoid police accompaniment. This was met with police horses, riot police and riot vans pursuing protesters up Stokes Croft. Protesters used roadwork signs and dustbins to block the road and prevent horses and vans from following. The protesters turned around after riot vans came from Gloucester road, and returned to the same location the violence had erupted during the original protest - the corner of Cheltenham road. This footage was filmed by myself on a Canon 500D during the bottle throwing. This was sparked after police kettled protesters from getting further into St. Pauls. Bottles were launched towards police and vans, before ammunition ran out, spare vans were brought in, and half a dozen police dogs were presented to the attackers. This is only a quick video as most of my time was spent taking photographs. My photos will be uploaded to http://www.flickr.com/photos/mckenziels/ within the next few days.
