Brian Haw remembered

Parliament Square, London. Sat 18 Jun 2017



 'War is is not the solution to the problems we face in the 21st century'

 Brian Haw began his camp here on 2 June 2001, and remained in place despite many attempts, legal and otherwise

 to remove him for almost 10 years, leaving only when arrested, for court appearances and to speak at protests

at Trafalgar Square and Downing St until 1 January 2011 when he left England to receive treatment for his lung

 cancer in Berlin. He died in Germany in the early hours of 18 June 2011.His ten years of protest and the frequent

  and repeated harassment undoubtedly hastened his decline and death.His protest in Parliament square was

 continued by Barbara Tucker who had joined him in 2005 and had been imprisoned twice for her role in the

protest and arrested 48 times. The level of harassment increased and she went on hunger strike on 31st December 2012.
Late in January 2013 she was taken into hospital close to death, and was treated for frostbite and exposure. Her

protests continue on-line.
