Is peaceful demonstration still a civil right?
I'm off to Manchester next Thursday to camp out for three days at a 'Peace Camp' in Albert Square.
While researching a play about the effect on the families of soldiers who are killed, maimed or broken while serving in Iraq & Afghanistan -
I've spoken to some remarkable people.

and Military Families Against the War
Military Families Against the War are hosting the peace camp event.
But Manchester City Council tried to prevent the 'peace camp' taking placeBBC news citing 'logistical' problems. Hmm?
It also coincides with the start of the Labour Party Conference at the G. Mex on Sunday.
Stop the War coalition are inviting people to march on a Time To Go demonstration.
So what logistical problems are they really concerned with?
A peace camp? A labour council against it?
It will happen. People will sit together and talk about the notion of peace.
Now that is a scary thought for our leaders eh?
