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.
