A hero

Brian Haw has been protesting in parliment square against the Iraq war since 2 june 2001. Now that’s dedication to a cause, you have to admire.

In order to remove this man, the government passed a law making it illegal to protest within 1 mile of parliment, without permission (ignoring the injustice of that for a minute…).

Brian’s team appealed and won, on the grounds his protest pre-dated the legislation.

Yesterday the government won its appeal and so they can now legally arrest him under this new legislation.

I think it’s sad that he can’t continue his protest, who was he harming exactly?
