Westminster Magistrates Court, Horseferry Road, London at 10.00am
Protesters Maria Gallastegui and Seamus O'Colgan scaled the House of Commons last year in order to highlight the important debate concerning the on-going war in Afghanistan. They unfurled "TROOPS HOME" banners and proclaimed it to be an illegal immoral war, aimed at predominantly innocent unarmed civilians. This was a real opportunity to change the course of the war, had MP's the will and courage to vote for withdrawal.
Meet outside the court for 09.30
