Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

But the mood was starkly different in London and Brighton, where images and videos of women being arrested were disseminated widely. The footage has deepened the anger felt by many, and helped to ignite a national movement.

One 23-year-old who attended a vigil in Brighton criticised Sussex police. "At first, it was silent, then people were speaking. There was singing and tears; it was really very moving. It really escalated when the police surrounded one of the speakers."

She added: "What was so shocking to me about last night when there was criticism of Sussex police, you could see loads of people had felt this pain in some way. I reported a rape a couple years ago to Sussex police and know there's an institutional problem."
