GEORGE BUSH UK VISIT ON SUNDAY 15 JUNE 2008

George Bush visits the UK this Sunday 15 June, and not January, as stated at one point in our last newsletter. The  George Bush Not Welcome Here demonstration assembles in   Parliament Square at 5.00pm

ANTI-GEORGE BUSH POLICE BAN TO BE DEFIED

The police have banned our march from Parliament Square to   Downing Street, where Gordon Brown will be entertaining George Bush. It seems that when George W Bush visits this  country traditional rights of assembly and movement are   removed from the people. This would be unacceptable for the   visit of any foreign leader, but for this one – a war criminal – it is doubly unacceptable and we will defy the  ban. We are calling on all those who care for our democratic rights to come to Parliament Square at 5.00 pm on Sunday 15  June.

Some of those who signed statements accusing Bush of war  crimes will be leading this protest. Here are the comments   of human rights activist Bianca Jagger and actor Roger Lloyd  Pack:

“It is outrageous that George W Bush – a war criminal who has caused so much damage to our world – is to be protected from those who dare raise their voices against his crimes.  

The ‘Green Zone’ that will be set up around 10 Downing Street next Sunday, preventing the people of Britain from  exercising their legitimate democratic right to assmble and  march, must be opposed” - BIANCA JAGGER

“I feel affronted that George Bush is coming over here, and  even more  affronted that I’m not allowed to march in protest. This is a new thing isn’t it, this banning of peaceful marches? What’s going on? I thought we were  supposed to be living in a free country. Isn’t that why they  said we went to war with Iraq?” – ROGER LLOYD PACK

We are challenging this ban with the Home Office and   Metropolitan Police. Please send messages of complaint to  the Home Secretary:  

* Telephone: 020 7035 0198  
* Fax: 020 7035 0900  
* Email: [email protected]

Complain to the Metropolitan Police:  
* Telephone: 020 7230 1212.
