Notting Hill Carnival: Not all fun and games
According to the article, Mary Brandon spent nine hours in hospital following the incident during Monday’s festivities. Ms Brandon said “A man in the crowd grabbed my arse. When I told him not to he did it again. I pushed him away, exercising my right to tell a man to stop touching my body without my permission, so he took a swing at me and punched me in the face.” Well, as someone who's lived in London for a while, I can't help but be surprised at such assault taking place. I've personally never taken part in the festival but this is the first time I've ever seen reports like this and had no idea that such behaviour is so prevalent. It's appalling to think that such attacks still happen. Any guy who thinks this kind of behaviour is acceptable should stay away. It is never ok to treat anyone in this way. Have you ever experienced harassment while at a festival?
