A hundred thousand protestors congregated in central London last Saturday (June 20) with one goal: to fight back against the government's policy of welfare cuts and austerity measures.

Members of our Flickr community were there to capture all the action – check out their shots below.

Photographer Max Gor said: ‘This was the biggest demo I have ever seen. So many people attended: it was such fantastic mix of people from many cultures and backgrounds. I personally do not support all their views, but it was fascinating to see that unity, how they organised themselves, how they treat each other. It isn't something you often see.’
