The last unauthorised protester, Brian Haw, dies

The death yesterday of Parliament Square protester, Brian Haw, signals the end of last unauthorised protest within one mile of Parliament.

While I did not agree with all that Brian Haw believed in and stood for, he was an excellent example of how ordinary members of the public can thumb their nose at the political class which seeks to marginalise and silence people when they choose to dissent and campaign about something they strongly believe in.

The people of this country should be entitled to protest against the decisions of the political class directly outside the Palace of Westminster as they see fit.  But since 2005 the parasites have sought to insultate themselves from protest and opposition by the people who pay their wages and make their legislative agenda possible via taxation.  This underlines the fact that Britain in 2011 is not a democracy and ordinary voters are an inferior class to those who form the establishment.

If enough people choose to do so, they have the power to reject this segregation and make a mockery of the insulation law passed by Parliament by carrying their protest right to the heart of this nation’s supposed seat of democracy without having to seek permission from the police. It is those who have seats in Parliament who should be answerable to us, not the other way around.

Brian Haw tried in his own way to make that point and whether you agree with his cause or not, he deserves recgonition for standing against the establishment in the way he did.

    AM,

    I was genuinely saddened by Brian’s death yesterday. For all the reasons you give here.

    There can be no doubt that the actions of TPTB hastened his death.

    I hope that they lose a lot of sleep as a result. (They won’t, but I can hope).

    CR.

    I wonder if Brian Haw and the rest of the “Peace Camp” ever noticed the irony of protesting against all kinds of wars under the amused eyes of Winston Churchill: http://andreasmoser.wordpress.com/2011/06/18/peace-camp-churchill/

    Nonetheless, may Mr Haw rest in peace.

    Brian Haw, some critical of his manner and application of the delivery of his message, whilst I sympathize with those that leisurely stroll in the park for peace of mind and restoration, it must be a confrontation to the sensibility of such sensitive souls to be confronted by rampant lower class upstart amplifying his protest through a megaphone, bearing in mind the nature to some extent the slaughter of young and old in a country that we are not privileged to hear there side of the story, it is not surprising that one person out of 65 million may be vocal to attempt to rectify this as a individual conscience to bring to the publics attention a different point of view other than the Establishment of the Elite being across the road, the House of Parliament, who would have access to the media to validate the incursion of British Military Forces in Afghanistan, that endorses the condition of slaughter of civilians as a consequence and unfortunate circumstance being the outcome of friendly fire, for the greater good.
