after the torrential rain at the start of this protest, today has seen a chance to dry out and consolidate. with more structures in place and plans for the week beginning to form, the camp has issued a call-out for an election day festival all afternoon and evening in parliament square, with music, food, guerilla gardening and open mic, and an intention to remain a presence in the square as the new government takes over power.
Declaration from the Democracy Village: Day 3
You may be aware of the recent formation of a Democracy Village on Parliament Square, Westminster which was setup on Saturday 1st May by a group of concerned citizens. The primary aim of the Democracy Village is to represent the views of the people by demanding an end to the war in Afghanistan and the immediate withdrawal of UK armed forces from the country.
This Thursday (6th May), we will be having a celebratory festival of peace at the Democracy Village and calling on the relevant adminstrative bodies to assist us with our peaceful demands. There will be live music, hot food, guerilla gardening, an open mic and much more (all ages are welcome). If you share the view that the time for peace is now, then vote with your feet and come to Parliament Square this Thursday(activities start at 12 Noon and will go on till late).
The Democracy Village is intended to continue until the demands of the concerned citizens are met. Everyone is welcome to join the Democracy Village at any time. Please bring a sleeping bag or a blanket and some warm clothing if you would like to stay.
Please pass this message on to anyone who might be interested and spread the word.
Peace and love
Concerned citizens @ Democracy Village
