Mass Photo Gathering Protest – Great PR #phnat

The demonstration yesterday in Trafalgar Square, London, against the ill-conceived anti-terrorism laws has resulted – ironically – in some really great images.

The law aims gives police powers to ban photographers from taking pictures in public, as they could supposedly present a terrorism threat.

Public relations and especially media relations are brought to life with great photography. I’ve already posted on this event and here is more excellent imagery, which will change over time depending on what is uploaded to Flickr.

I would add that although there are some excellent examples of photography here, the resulting press coverage wasn’t that impressive, especially as the media has a vested interest in stopping this law. Maybe these photographers should have enlisted a few public relations professionals to help out?
