David Haws sole anti war campaigner outside the Houses of Parliament. Has accused the British government of murder and abuse. He felt so strongly about the issues that four years ago he decided to put all his placards and signs and camp outside where all Britain's decisions are made. In the four years he has been camped there, he has been taken to court several times and has always been allowed to return as we in this country believe in freedom of speech. Now he tells me that due to some new laws being passed he will be evicted from where he has been protesting. He has now put up posters on the new laws that says one man can not protest on his own. What I am wondering is where has the freedom of anyone to protest in peace gone? Are the law makers just making laws to suit themselves and will our right to freedom of speech now be curtailed because they don't like where we protest?
