Hunger Strike: Started on December 27th 2012.

My name is Babs Tucker.

****Freedom**** of Expression is the most important right you can exercise to bring about change peacefully.

I did not come to Parliament Square to die and I do not want to die. I came to Parliament Square because people everywhere are entitled to – live – in peace, without the constant illegal wars being waged by government.

I have been campaigning in Parliament Square, with Brian Haw’s Parliament Square Peace Campaign, 24/7 for seven years, during which time I have been unlawfully arrested 47 times and imprisoned twice without trial in Holloway Women’s Prison in North London.

Our campaign’s 24/7 presence reflects the fact that while wars rage and Parliament continues to only sit part-time, with many long breaks, the people do care about one another, all the time, in all weather.

We remind government that the horrendous brutality of the illegal wars have led to millions of innocent civilians suffering and dying in Iraq and Afghanistan.

On January 16th 2012, Westminster Council along with many Metropolitan Police endangered our lives by stealing our tents and their contents from Parliament Square in the middle of winter when the night time temperatures regularly plummet to well below zero degrees Celcius.

  1. Slowely they are than stripping away the right to even peacfully protest, taken away this right makes us nothing but those under the Nazi control, not to make it seem as bad, but with out the right to protest outside the house of parliment leaves us….well in the obse. (pardon my spelling and grammer)
