Solidarity with Refugees march in London 2015

On Saturday the 12th of September tens of thousands of people in London gathered to offer solidarity to the refugees who are fleeing war zones into Europe, in the biggest mass movement of people in a generation.

Here are some photographs of the march – if you want to use them they are available via this link at Demotix.  Please keep any comments constructive.

All shots were taken with either the Fuji X-T1 (with 56mm f1.2 lens) or the Fuji X-Pro1 (with 35mm f1.4 lens).
