  • Police continue to hold back protesters and the media from the building in order to maintain the road as a public thoroughfare. The London-based police officers are no stranger to the world's media in high-profile situations such as this.

  • One police officer talks to a protester wearing an Anonymous mask, an image first seen in the 'V for Vendetta' comics and subsequent film in the early-2000's.

  • A protester questions why Assange is held "under siege," following the U.K. government's threat to Ecudaor that it could storm the embassy under existing British law.
