As demos go, they don’t get much more intimate than this three man affair that just shouted up and down Coldharbour Lane.

Banners implored passers-by to “Get up Stan up for your rights,” “Stop the persecution of the Black man” and to “Stop the persecution of Afro Cribbean.”

My favourite was the one in the first guy’s hand which implores, “More love and unity, Brixton.” I can’t argue with that.

There may have only been three of them, but the twin-pronged megaphone onslaught certainly caught the ear.
