One protester holds a placard saying: "Blowing the whistle on war crimes is not a crime," in response to a number of Wikileaks releases that blew the whistle on high-profile controversial and often violent events.
This poingnant image shows a "Free Assange the Messenger" placard blocking out the police surrounding the Ecuadorian embassy should Assange attempt to leave. The protester was behind the police line set up to give law enforcement space to breathe.
The police came close to outnumbering the protesters. There was roughly two protesters to each police officer on the scene.
