Boris Johnson attacks peace protest

Issue No. 2203

London Mayor Boris Johnson has launched an attack on the peace and democracy protesters camped in Parliament Square.

He is seeking an injunction against the 40 or so protesters, claiming they are making the place look “untidy”.

Brian Haw was arrested on Tuesday morning.

For all the Tories' bluster about “protecting civil liberties”, this spells the start of even more punitive tactics.
