police hostility at anti-war demonstration in london

15-02-2005 20:48

I attended the ‘Stop the War’ protest in Parliament Square London on the 15 February 2005 and was shocked by the police’s hostile management of this event. I also got the chance to talk to a leader of left-wing politics for the last half-century Tony Benn.
