Carnival atmosphere as hundreds gather in Brixton for Afrikan Emancipation Day

Hundreds of people gathered in south London on Saturday (August 1) for the seventh Afrikan Emancipation Day March.

Video shows crowds of people listening to music in Windrush Square, Brixton.

Organisers had planned to shut down a major road through Brixton in protest against a lack of reparations for slavery.

"Earlier in the day, protestors blocked the streets with many protestors dressed paramilitary style but in the evening, it became a carnival event with stalls selling food and clothes, and MCs chanting and singing on the mic and passionate speeches," the filmer said.
