BRIAN HAW RIP

 ANOTHER GOOD MAN GONE.

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 !
