after the democracy village eviction hearing was adjourned this afternoon at the high court, 3 protestors scaled the building and dropped banners 100 feet above the strand. police are in attendance.
the banners call for peace in afghanistan, no more war, and respect for soldiers but not for war.
the hearing itself was adjourned for further legal arguments and will continue on monday, with a probable direction for a full hearing the following friday.
with the possibility of appeals running to weeks, it looks as though the democracy village can grow from strength to strength in the meantime.
although the village is an umbrella of various protest groups and agendas, the strongest single issue and message seems to be about afghanistan, and with the majority of the british public behind the withdrawal of soldiers from this unsustainable war, it looks as though the democracy village and people's assembly outside parliament on the grass is a better representation of the british population than the corrupt, horse-trade coalition that has seized power inside parliament.
there were more than fifty supporters at the high court today and their presence was very powerful, so villagers are calling for even more support on monday morning.
