Violence warning as unions plan mass march

“Trade unions said on Tuesday their march this weekend will be the country’s biggest protest for years, but police fear splinter groups will attempt to repeat last December’s street violence.

The Trades Union Congress (TUC) said more than 100,000 people are expected at the march on Saturday to protest at deep government spending cuts and tax rises.

Brendan Barber, TUC’s general secretary, said he expected it to be the largest demonstration since up to a million people took to the streets on the capital in 2003 to oppose the planned invasion of Iraq.”
