Beginning in King's Cross, Reclaim the Streets protesters fill the streets and begin to cause commuters havoc. After nearly coming to blows with motorists, the party atmosphere gets into full swing with revellers climbing and skateboarding off bus shelters. Reclaim The Streets was and still is a collective that fundamentally opposes corporate influences on society and particularly sees the automobile as having a detrimental impact on society.
