'troops out' banner drop in whitehall todayTagged as: afghanistan anti-militarism iraq parliament_square peace socpa
two 'concerned citizens' from the ongoing democracy village camp in parliament square have this afternoon climbed onto the old war office building directly adjacent to downing street. there they've dropped a large, and awfully polite, banner saying "please bring our soldiers home now"
the democracy village (which set up in parliament square on mayday) have staged direct actions almost every day since they've been there.
this afternoon, at around 4pm, two activists climbed onto the old war office building in whitehall and unfurled a large banner "please bring our soldiers home"
police had to seal off the main door to the building, forcing staff to use an alternative route out of the building.
at 6pm, the protest was still continuing, with the banner visible to rush-hour traffic, pavement traffic, and of course the large number of government and civil servant staff passing by.
police have been communicating with the protestors and warned them that they are holding an 'unauthorised' protest under SOCPA law, but no attempt has been made to remove them.
