There’s work to be sorted and planning to do for the exclusion zone protest next Monday August 1st.

If you’re new here, you can follow my concerns about the exclusion zone and the issues that surround it by clicking here or poking your way around this category.

I’ll be working on some posters… suggestions for slogans or themes are welcome.

Additionally, I urge you to promote this protest on your weblog and explain its importance to your readers.

(Incidentally, you may not know that laws passed to target animal rights activists already make it illegal to protest outside Downing St. Which is a residence. This new ‘exclusion zone’ law is supposedly designed to target… organised crime.)


  1. HoytAxton says

    Hey there I just got this in e-mail. What is this about? Any truth to it?==================================================PASS IT ON!Ok, here is the deal: I hate, really dislike, getting email chain letters, petitions, etc. as they are generally about as inspirational as watching paint dry, or as effective as baying at the moon. HOWEVER I have come across one “pass it along” that may actually do some good:Copy this email and send it to everyone in your address book. We will know we have made a real “dent” in the world when the institutional news channels, bloggers, and radioheads start to report this rumor:Karl Rove has a male lover named Teddy Cacafuego, AKA the human Banana-Boy!

    *Caca*fuego? Sounds like a joke to me.

  3. balders says

    The Cacafuego was a Spanish galleon captured by Sir Francis Drake, but the whole Rove email sounds like bullshit to me.

  4. Wolf Solent says

    So… how long before this starts getting spun as tying up police who are urgently needed elsewhere, I wonder?

  5. Parliament Protest says

    Brian haw wins his legal loophole case and can continue to protest in Parliament Square – but the restrictions still apply to everybody else

    The BBC reports that Brian Haw has won his legal loophole case against the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005, and can continue his protest. This must be hugely embarassing for the Government which brought in the controversial legislation…

  6. bookdrunk says

    As you may have now seen, Brian Haw has won his case with the argument that as his protest started four years ago, he’s the only one not covered by the law.Ack.. can’t get the trackback to work, so PING.

  7. goatchurch says

    In usual government-speak: “If the police choose to waste their time harrassing peaceful protesters and looking for bombs behind their signs where they are not going to be, this is a matter for them.”

  8. Garry says

    If you're still looking for slogans for banners and the like, what about "Burst the Bubble" or something along those lines? It's late so I can't decide if that's really obvious or really obscure (or indeed really rubbish). Either way, it's a bubble that definitely needs a good prick. (Choose your own punchline for that one though.)
