#PRESS RELEASE# 00.45 Tuesday 20th July 2010 Parliament Square
“Democracy Village goes on STRIKE!”
“Concerned Citizens”at Democracy Village on Parliament Square state in open defiance of the pending eviction notice that they fully intend to carry on with their demand to “Bring Our Soldiers Home Alive!”
The majority of the people in this country DO NOT SUPPORT THE WAR IN AFGHANISTAN!
Young people want a future free from war and deprivation. We now have a whole generation of disenfranchised youth who are disillusioned with a government that spends our money on illegal wars of aggression and illegal occupations.
We refuse to comply with laws that prevent our message going out to the people from Parliament Square, the historical home of protest. People only gather together to risk arrest and possible imprisonment if their concerns are of the utmost urgency.
Therefore to go “ON STRIKE for PEACE” to save life is our duty and can never be illegal if the underlying cause is justified.
Concerned Citizens of Democracy Village, Parliament Square, London
