An anti-war protestor will have to give up his five year vigil in London following a court ruling. Brian Haw lost his legal bid to stage a round
the clock demonstration against the Iraq conflict outside the Houses of Parliment.
As it states in the article, yet another stab in the back for democracy.
The end comment makes me laugh, "Police can now stop unauthorised protests which pose a "hindrance to the proper operation of parliment" and risk
"serious public disorder".
I don't know that much about this guy, but from what i've heard he has conducted a peacefull vigil during his five years sat outside Parliment. Not
exactly hindering the operation of Parliment, and hardly a serious public disorder risk!
More like a case of getting rid of the one guy sat outside our countries biggest kindergarten who is making the place look untidy whilst doing a good
job of bring some good points to the attention of others. Can't be having none of that now can we?
I wonder what other petty ways the police and government will find to abuse this ruling?
