March for the Alternative: in pictures

Another view of last month's march.

Between 250,000 and 500,000 people marched against cuts in London on 23 March. The demonstrators were young and old, and had a variety of reasons for coming. Below are some pictures by photographer Cathy Teesdale that show the diversity of the event.
