During this year's MayDay festivities, and despite torrential rain, a village of some twenty tents sprung up in in Parliament Square. Activists from Peacestrike and supporters have been living in the Demockracy Village ever since, staging a regular series of actions [1 | 2 | 3] and banner drops [1 | 2] calling for an immediate end to the war in Afghanistan and for the troops to be brought home. Three weeks later, the village is still ongoing, and activists claim to be committed to maintaining their presence on Parliament Square until their demands are met.

Statement From The Democracy Village, Parliament Square
We, the concerned citizens of the Democracy Village on Parliament Square, demand on behalf of the majority of people that the war in Afghanistan is ended and the troops are brought home with immediate effect.
The Democracy Village calls all like-minded concerned citizens to come and join us. We are calling a Strike for Peace until our demands are met. We are committed to maintaining an ongoing presence on Parliament Square.
All are welcome to come and stay for a few hours, a day, or a night.
Donations of food and equipment are very welcome. Bring a sleeping bag and tent if you plan to stay.
In this election, no major party has offered the choice to end this pointless war.
VOTE FOR PEACE by coming to the village today.
