Along with thousands of others I turned out on Saturday to march against the State Visit granted the Pope.
Here are some of the slogans and signs
As a woman marched down Piccadilly with a brave banner Raped at 6, Awaiting Justice at 28 two Catholics stood on the pavement with yellow and white papal flag, and cried 'shame'. To cheers, a marcher snatched their banner and galumphed away with it until another, incensed, forced him to give it up - and then she ran over, and handed it back.
It was a very British demo.
The procession stretched the length of Piccadilly. When the head of the march reached Downing Street, the tail was still in Trafalgar Square.
There were more than 10,000 marchers protesting the Pope - the largest demo ever, against any modern Pope, anywhere
I was so proud.
