Parliament Square, London. Wed 13 Feb 2013
A 'Heritage Warden' comes to tell the protesters they cannot stand on the kerb around the grass
or attache their banners to the posts in the grass which is GLA property. I'm surprised they don't tell him to get lost
But the protesters keep to the pavement, which the GLA don't have any control over.
There are enough protesters for banners along the length of the square, with others handing out leaflets across the road
Green MP Caroline Lucas comes over to talk to the protesters and give her support
Shaaker Aamer was illegally rendered to Guantanamo 11 years ago
and despite twice having been cleared for release is still held there - and is still being routinely beaten and shackled by the guards
He has never been charged with any offence
And was 'cleared' for release 5 years ago
