Brighton and Hove welcomes protesters
Activists have been given an open invitation to protest in Brighton and Hove.
The new ruling party in Brighton and Hove has said it is a “duty” for protesters to take to the streets and express their anger at cuts to public services.
more from the article:
The debate comes after the latest series of protests in the city this weekend, which saw five high-street banks occupied.
The campaign saw about 50 activists demonstrating in Lloyds, Natwest, RBS, Santander and Barclays but no arrests. The council has already refused to evict a group of Spanish protesters who have been camping at Old Steine.
“I hope over the next four years we will see a whole new atmosphere. Legitimate protest is not just a right but in the current climate is almost a duty. We want people to feel confident they can carry out that duty in our city without fear."
