Hundreds of protesters gathered in Shepherd's Bush Green ahead of a "Day of Rage" event.
The event was organised for the one-week anniversary of the Grenfell Tower fire and the day of the Queen's Speech and official opening of Parliament for the new government.
A diverse group of people from across the United Kingdom had travelled to London for the protest, but were faced with criticism from locals.
getwestlondon was told how residents of the tower that was gutted by a fire on June 14 did not want their grief hijacked by a violent protest.
Louise Robertson travelled from Scotland to London for the march.
"We really hope that they will appreciate it" she said.
I've brought a banner down from Scotland with the names of nearly 200 people from my small area who are horrified at what happened in that fire and they wanted to lend their support to local people."
Karen Doyle, one of the national organisers for Movement for Justice said: "The government is guilty of murder and we can't afford to accept another five years of a government who puts profit before people.
"Our march today is to express the anger that people are feeling and to demand that this government is brought down.
"Anger doesn't do justice to was people are feeling not just in this community but across the country, Its a deep and passionate anger thats built upon years of neglect and attacks and abuse.
"We have never said that we are speaking for the victims or survivors of the Grenfell, we wouldn't do that.
"But what we've found when we've spoke to people on the streets is an absolute desire that this not die down, that people's anger just disappears.
"People want their anger felt and they are blaming squarely what happened on the government and RBKC."
