Anti Olympic missile protest in East London

Hundreds of East Londoners will hit the streets later today in protest at government plans to site missiles on local estates as part of security measures for the Olympic games.

The demonstration is calling for the ground to air missile plans to be scrapped.

Protesters will be addressed by councillors, trade union officials and local religious leaders before marching to Bow Quarter - one of the proposed missile sites - from 1pm.
