You do not have to agree with everything that Brian Haw is protesting about, in order to be outraged by the excessive Designated Area protest exclusion zone:

"Organising Opposition to New Restrictions on Protest around Parliament

Public meeting on 29 June 2005 at the Indian YMCA at 7.30pm

(Indian YMCA, 41 Fitzroy Square, London W1T 6AQ, nearest tubes: Goodge Street, Warren Street, Gt Portland St.)

The meeting will discuss practical ways (including civil disobedience) to oppose the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act which will come into force on 1 July and to prevent the eviction of peace protestor Brian Haw who can be arrested under the new legislation from 2 August.

All welcome.

Organised by Parliament Square Peace Campaign and Brian Haw Supporters

This meeting seems to clash with the nearby one at the University of Westminster about ID cards / Databases, with speakers such as

Rt Hon Tony Benn
Dominic Grieve QC, MP
Alistair Carmichael MP
George Galloway MP, and
Director of Liberty, Shami Chakrabarti;

who are probably also sympathetic to protesting about the Parliament Square protest restrictions.

Hints and Tips for Whistleblowers

There are many good people trapped in the bureaucracies which run London. If you are thinking about blowing the whistle on shadowy and powerful people in Government or commerce, and their dubious policies then you need be very careful these days. The mainstream media and bloggers also need to take simple precautions to help preserve the anonymity of their sources e.g.

The Evening Standard newspaper - fulfills its role by scrutinising the Mayor and the GLA etc. rather more effectively than the politicians and bureaucrats do.
