Six people have been charged, with all pleading not guilty to offences linked to the demonstration in Cromwell Road, south Kensington, on October 19.
The three women and three men are Ben Sansam, 38, , Sheila Shatford, 67, both from Bristol, Stephen Jarvis, 66, from Devon, Anna Retallack, 58, from Cornwall, Lora Johnson, 38, from Southwold in Suffolk and Benjamin Larsen, 25, from Cheshire.
