21:30: The demonstration has entered the Tottenham campus, the
location of Beyond ESF. Apart from the one arrest at Alexandra Palace
earlier, everyone is safe and sound.

21:05: The crowd is walking in the middle of White Hart Lane, and has
got as far as the sports area. Police helecopters are flying overhead.
Everything is OK.

20:40:The crowd has marched passed Wood Green tube station, taking a
detour to come out past he station and off the main road. Crowd numbers
are now aprox 200. There are four police vans, which is much less than
before. Once people left the main road the police escort decreased. There
is a good mood in the crowd with chants of "our streets".

20:35: Demonstrators are approaching Wood Green tube station,
marching along the road with a banner saying "ESF --another world for
sale. We say another world is possible."

20:20: 150-200 people are now walking back to the Beyond ESF space. A
police van (driving too fast) drove into protestors. No-one was hurt.
Demonstrators kicked the van; other police vans are in close proximity.

20:10: Other eye-witnesses say that the police were "quite" violent, using
batons while making the arrest. 100s of people are marching towards
Wood Green, there is no trouble with them at the moment.

20:00: The part of the demonstration oustide Ali Pali contains 100 people.
There was a confirmed report of one arrest in the past few minutes. An
eye-witness describes police "wading in" and the person arrested being
"bundled into a van." Demonstrators are now moving towards Wood
Green station.

19:50: Some of the protestors are moving outside of Alexandra Palace
(Ali Pali). Police presence outside is small numerically. Demonstrators
outnumber police and are encircling them. Police are coming out of Ali
Pali as reinforcements. Police are trying to move noisy demonstrators off
road onto pavement and not really succeeding. There are reports of extra
police vans arriving from both inside and outside Alexandra Palace.

19:20: between 200 and 400 people have succeeded in entering the official
European Social Forum without paying or registering. They are in the
main plenary space, scaling scaffolding and hanging banners saying:
"Another world is for sale" and "Ken's party -- the war party", referring to
Mayor Ken Livingstone, funder of the ESF and member of the ruling
New Labour Party.
