police making arrests during the Olympic torchbearer ceremony in central London. Although many if not the majority of spectators lining the pavements had come to watch the passing torchbearers, a vocal and very visible number of people used the ceremony to protest against various dictators and dictatorships and the Chinese government's preventing Tibet from being autonomous and separate from the almighty China. The men pictured were protesting on behalf of the Burmese people
