The European Social Forum has ended on Sunday, with a large demonstration
and a number of autonomous actions (Clowns actions and Pro-capitalist block)

The demonstration had a clear anti-war character
and attracted a large number of people who did not attend the ESF.

were eventually let to go and when they finally arrived at Trafalgar Square
some tried to get to the stage in what some describe as storming the stage.
The police in cooperation with the organisers
made several arrests http://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/2004/10/299362.html
including an Indymedia volunteer and member of the ESF organizing
body. Solidarity actions were called, and a number of Clowns invaded

Those arrested including a Greek http://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/2004/10/299417.html

Thanks for organising "Beyond ESF".Thanks to Anarchist Teapot, too,
who provided the food and the Chiapas Solidarity group for providing
excelllent coffee.
Thanks too for the groovy student union at Middlesex University - it
definitely can be recommended to study there whatsoever!

Dear Wombles,

thank you so much for all you have done for us, for setting up the Beyond
ESF space, providing us all with food, appreciation, recognition, love and
shelter, with music, party, and good vibes and courage, empowerment
and determination (all free but donations).
Thanks for taking care of us by putting yourself at risk, for cleaning up
muddy toilets at 3 am in the morning, for inviting us all to come to
London for one of the best week ever had in the autonomous and social
movements, to put in so much work to create a place we could feel home,
participate in, relax, to learn from, about and with each other on an equal
basis, to work together without having to compete, to get to know,
understand and appreciate each other just for being there.

Thanks for struggling to reform the official ESF, thanks for setting up the
accomodation, thanks for organising “Beyond ESF”, thanks for
participating at the actions.

Hope our comrades are out soon.
Best wishes and solidarity
