Demonstration at Nørreport
I left work late today (21:00), the knock-on consequence of programming until 07:00 this morning and thereby getting in to work at 15:00. Old habits die hard.
Anyway, the traffic lights at the Øster Voldgade/Gothersgade junction were blocked all the way round by police vans, blue lights flashing. The number 42 bus I was on sat there for about 5 minutes until the driver opened the doors to get out to talk to the police, so then most of the passengers got out. It looks like it was the rump of the 500-strong demonstration which had been celebrating Ungdomhusets 23rd birthday earlier on outside Christiansborg. It moved down Frederickborgsgade, presumably heading over the lake towards Nørrebro, and by the time I'd walked to the station, it was all over. A brief moment of excitement in Copenhagen's otherwise tranquil Autumn environs. No photos, unfortunately.
