This afternoon in Oxford there was a rally and a protest march from Oxpens Road near the Ice Rink into the city centre and on to the Science area of Oxford University. While out and about this morning I could see a large number of police around the place and this normally means a demonstration of same sort. This photo was taken just as the march started to move off towards the city centre, the protest march was against Oxford University’s enlargement of the Zoology department which carries out animal experimentation, Felix is one of the primates that the university is currently carrying texts on, ironically Felix in Latin is translated to Happy, which the protesters say can not be the case for this animal.
