This was the second SPEAK protest in Oxford city centre that I documented. A small gathering of people assembled to highlight their feelings that funding given to Oxford University by Vodaphone could help to fund the animal lab.

SPEAK had other events planned across the city that day, but despite the relatvely small numbers of protesters here, the police presence remained strong and they filmed and photographed everything that happened at close proximity.

The event passed off peacefully other than some shouting and arguing.
