   On 18 June 1999 a demonstration billed as The Carnival Against
   Capitalism took place in central London. Approximately 23 groups took
   part, the largest being Reclaim the Streets. The demonstration started
   at 7am in the City of London, when a number of groups met up on
   bicycles, then set out to cause congestion by riding very slowly
   around the City in a large group, effectively blocking main

   The other groups met up at different times and locations throughout
   the City and central London, culminating in the groups massing at
   Liverpool Street Station at midday, at which time the crowd numbered
   approximately 6,000. The demonstration had been largely peaceful up to
   this point. The crowd split into three groups and made its way, taking
   different routes, to the London International Financial Futures
   Exchange (LIFFE) Building, Dowgate Hill. On route to the LIFFE
   building, the crowd became aggressive. They attacked police officers
   and persons who were not part of the demonstration. They attacked
   premises, causing serious damage and stealing property. 
   Once massed at the LIFFE building, they tried to storm first this
   building and then, after being repelled, other buildings in the
   vicinity. They caused massive criminal damage. This carried on for
   several hours during which police fought with the crowd to regain
   control. At about 6pm, the crowd made its way to Trafalgar Square,
   causing more damage on the way, where it started to disperse later
   that evening. 
   The investigation into the offences committed that day has been code
   named Operation Enterprise. Hundreds of video tapes and thousands of
   still photographs shot on the day have been scanned to identify
   persons committing offences. Some of this evidence supports the case
   against persons already charged. A number of persons have been
   identified since 18 June, but there are numerous others still to be
