Westminster Peace Presence
(The first weekly 24hr Westminster Peace Presence commenced Sunday 22nd May @ 6 p.m it was planned to continue through to 6 p.m on Monday 23rd. However, @ 8am On monday 23rd May 2011, on behalf of the GLA and Boris Johnson, the security once again used physical force to move the people off of the land)
The first WPP was held on a piece of land at Parliament Square, Westminster (a piece not caged off by the large infamous harris fencing.
The purpose of the WPP is to actively promote peace and an demand an immediate end to the British government's policy of war. The government's wars continue to cause the deaths of innocent lives everyday in countries including Afghanistan and Libya.
Monday is a working day in the heart of the British government's offices. The WPP provides a great oppurtunity to peacefully alert government servants, citizens and everyone else to the harm that is being caused by the government and the urgent priority that policies of war must end now.
At the initial meeting of the WPP which took place on Parliament Square on Sunday 15th May, it was agreed that
all participants of the WPP should aspire to behave peacefully.
to adopt transparency and refrain from secretive behaviour.
Meet at the Trafalgar Square Anti-Cuts Occupation from 3 p.m onwards (usually in the middle of Trafalgar Square) on Sunday. There will be an open mic and discussions of the struggle for freedom in North African countries. At 6 p.m participants of the WPP will go to Parliament Square to setup the camp. If for whatever reason we are unable to camp on Parliament Square (E.G: if the fence is extended) then another location will be chosen nearby.
