|Police in May Day Alert|
- Weekend of demos planned by campaigners
ALL police leave has been cancelled in London this weekend as anti-capitalist demonstrators stage a series of events aimed against the world financial system.
Similar demos last June ended in bitter fighting between campaigners and the police and the Met are keen to impose their presence early on in what promises to be a long weekend of marches and agitprop theatre.
The first event on Friday involved a mass bike ride from the South bank to Hyde Park while other events include guerrilla gardening where activists plan to plant trees all over Parliament Square on May Day.
Marches include one organised by the UK's trade union movement, also on May Day.
