Brian Haw, the peace campaigner  who has been camping outside The Houses Of Parliment, for just over ten years, in protest at Britain’s invasion of Iraq & Afganistan, died  in Germany on Saturday of lung cancer.
 Despite being repeatedly arrested & harrassed by the police, Westminister Council & even the Mayor of London himself, Mr Haws stuck it out 24/7, come rain or shine.
When asked why, he said
“I want to go back to my own kids and look them in the face again, knowing that I’ve done all I can to try and save the children of Iraq and other countries who are dying because of my government’s unjust, amoral, fear and money-driven policies,”

I really wish that good people would stop dying, this blog is becoming like an obituary site !
