A victory. As evening approaches protestors occupy part of the conference centre. Some protestors have made it inside the building and onto the balconies.
This is at the very beginning where the big blue ball was rolled by the marchers up to the front line. The blue ball was eventually destroyed. The fire near the water cannon was created by a flaming projectile thrown by a marcher. The water cannon is forcing the marchers away from the ball.
Police fire tear gas..
A flaming barricade…
Protestors gather in Peace Square in the morning before demonstrations proper began.
