Anti-Thatcher protest in London's Trafalgar Square
London:  Hundreds of opponents of late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher have gathered in London's Trafalgar Square to celebrate her death.

Thatcher's most strident critics had long vowed to hold a party in central London on the Saturday following the former leader's passing.

Photographs and video footage appeared to show a few hundred people clutching their umbrellas in the rain between Nelson's Column and London's National Gallery.

Britons remain deeply divided over Thatcher, who died Monday aged 87, and the debate over her legacy has aroused strong feelings in London.

Widely respected on the right for reviving Britain's economic fortunes and besting Argentina in a war over the Falkland Islands, Thatcher is reviled by some on the left for her anti-union stance and perceived indifference to the country's working class.
