Stop the War : Time Change for Bush Demo

Just had this info about the demo on Sunday

BUSH DEMO: TIME CHANGE AND POLICE BAN

George Bush's itinery for his visit on Sunday 15 June is now confirmed. He is going to Downing Street for dinner and the Stop the War/CND demonstration has therefore been changed.

The protest now assembles at 5.00pm in Parliament Square. Please publicise the changed time as widely as you can and encourage everyone you know who opposes George Bush's endless warmongering, and the servile support he receives from the British government, to join us.

We have applied to demonstrate down Whitehall but so far the police, presumably under instructions from US security, are banning us. We are challenging the ban.

Please send messages of complaint to the Home Secretary:
* Telephone: 020 7035 0198
* Fax: 020 7035 0900
* Email:indpublicenquiries@ind.homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk

You can also complain to the Metropolitan Police about the proposed ban:
Telephone: 020 7230 1212.

Stop the War will also be organising a protest when George Bush goes to Windsor for tea with the Queen at 3.00pm.

Jim - yes, I hadn't noticed that. Have changed it to June now.

How are you getting there? No coaches from Cambridge as far as I know, although the local CND group were possibly putting some transport on
