A little walk through Speakers Corner

A little walk through Speakers Corner, Hyde Park, London. The day started sunny but soon wet bitter cold and then the rains came, the joy of the Bristish weather!
A few good chats, nothing dynamic but some weeks it’s step 1 and other weeks its’s step…etc

Speakers Corner in London’s Hyde Park is the oldest free speech platform in the world. People won the right to speak in mass protests in the 1860s and early 1870s. Some people believe the tradition is connected to the right of the condemned to a last speech before being hung at the Tyburn gallows, a practice that stopped at the end of the 18th century. Every Sunday people from all sorts of convictions come to Hyde Park in the afternoon to spead their message or to have fun.
