Atos protest could do with Wu Ming.

Triton Square is a unwelcoming canyon hidden between some of the Euston Road's more hostile office blocks. It's a fitting location for the UK HQ of the hated work capacity assessors Atos. Today has seen a national day of protest against the company who have been the scourge of the disabled, the mentally ill and the lost souls of the employment market. I don't know what happened in other locations but the Triton Square turnout can't have exceeded three dozen and will hardly have Atos bosses shaking in their boots.
Back home I switched the radio on and was just in time to catch Radio4's Europe's Troublemakers. Today's episode featured the Italian literary collective and political pranksters, Wu Ming. Cheered me up no end.
