Enviromental protesters complaining about something have attempted a rush on Parliament.. The plan was for them all to descend and try enter at the same time.
The footage is pretty cool...

Subject: CLIMATE RUSH - 13 October 2008
On Monday 13th October a number of environmental groups are associating themselves with the 100th anniversary of the ‘Rush on Parliament’ by the Women’s Sufferage Movement in an event entitled ‘Climate Rush’. This will involve a demonstration on Parliament Square during the afternoon and a planned ‘Rush on Parliament’ at 6.00 pm.
A number of security measures will be implemented in order to maintain access for Members of both Houses and to mitigate disruption to Parliamentary business. Some of these - such as increased police presence within and around the Parliamentary Estate, a heightened search regime and the closure of the Victoria Embankment and Derby Gate Library entrances all day on 13th October – may inconvenience Members and staff. We would be grateful for your understanding.

They are using old school castle security by barracading the doors with planks better get a tank next time...
