Over 400,000 Join London Anti-Cuts March

Hundreds of thousands of British opposing to the coalition government's budget cuts are marching in London streets, chanting for an alternative to the government's austerity cuts.

Tens of thousands of teachers, council staff, nurses, students, National Health Service (NHS) officials and many others who are angry at the public cut plans, mounting rates of unemployment, tax rises, pay cuts and pension reforms are partaking in the demonstration.

About 800 coaches were planned to get people from across the country to London to participate in the rally, which is considered as the biggest public reaction against government's spending cuts since it took office in May 2010 following the general elections. The protesters began marching from Victoria Embankment to Hyde Park.'
