Today was also the day of the Republican Street Party held in London by this organization: http://www.republic.org.uk/
These anti-Royals came from all over the UK to protest what they see as an outmoded system that must be dismantled. "Citizen not Subject" was just one of a handful of bumper-sticker phrases I saw emblazoned on t-shirts, mugs, and fliers available at the info. tables set up amid musicians, face-painters, and food stands. "If I had a quid for every time someone said that to me..." was what M., one of the organizers of the party, told me. I had said to her seconds earlier, "Yeah, but how could the monarchy be dismantled?"

By the end of the day, I didn't have the answer to my question. I did, however, get to see many people come together for a day of relaxed, good fun.
Here are some pictures:
