Bikers stage Guy Fawkes protest

Bikers and taxi drivers united in their battle against Westminster Council on Friday when they resurrected the spirit of Guy Fawkes in a silent protest outside City Hall.

ALMOST 150 people donned masks from the freedom fighting film V for Vendetta and staged a two minute protest with a banner reading ‘We Are Watching You’.

The protest, which was organised by the No To Mob – a group affiliated with the No To The Bike Parking Tax campaign – was designed to oppose the council’s parking enforcement.

Group spokesman Charlie Lort-Phillips said: “It was about sending the message to Westminster that it is under observation from the bikers and the taxi drivers.

“We are keeping a close eye on what is going on behind the scenes. They might think they have the power but we are not going away. It’s about people taking back power for themselves.”
