With the budget deficits and cuts that have to be made because of such, there will be many problems across the Uk and America this summer. I look for big problems in California soon. Stay clear of these protests and take good care of yourself, wonderful friend. Thanks for sharing what is happening there in London. Hug. Three

Hate seeing rallies that turn violent as that sure doesn't help anything. Hope you are safe!
