Simultaneous lone demonstration.

Via email. Come on everyone, you know you want to....

MORE INFO HERE ''Mark Thomas is furious about SOCPA ( join the club Mark) and has organised a Lone Demo in Parliament Square whereby as many people as possible apply as individuals to simultaneously demonstrate about anything they like.
The idea is that the police are overloaded with application forms which they have to process and approve, drawing attention to the ridiculous nature of all the red tape and "permissions". We're meeting on Thursday the 24th August at 6pm at Charing Cross PoliceStation to hand in our application forms. People are protesting about all kinds of things from the righteous to the downright silly.

The demo will then take place from 6pm at Parliament Square on Thursday the 31st August. If we can get as many people there as possible it should be really good fun and make a serious and important point. ( And remember, gentle readers, how it was ace fun when we all did it at Christmas, via Bloggerheads carol-singing ruse.)

You can get a SOCPA demo aplication from Mark's website here. If you can't make it, could you spread the word?''

Of course I will. And I will see you there, (with my battered hipflask of whisky at the ready as usual.) Suggestions for what you want to protest about ( as lone individuals, remember) in the comments box.

UPDATE: There's another one, application form handing-in deadline 15th September, demo 22nd September 2006. See you there again!

I'm protesting againt protests. Protests take up the valuable time and resources of everyone involved. The causes of, catalysts of, and reasons for protest should all be banned.

Down with this sort of thing.

Sounds like a really good idea. On the last one, did the police impose any conditions on the lone protestors?

Protest is essential in a democracy - or we will cease to be one.

Our campaign ARMS AGAINST WAR - gives us the opportunity to protest all the time and in all places - by wearing a white fabric (home-made) armband to show that we 'Want and end to the war in Iraq'.

This symbol is being taken up by all groups and individuals who oppose the war in Iraq - all over the world.

The symbol has no words - so cannot offend or get you arrested. It can be worn by many individual lone protesters - showing a unity that is not illegal :)

If you are going to protest - wear a scrap of white fabric to show what you stand for - and who you stand with. It is free, it is instant, it is accessible to anyone who owns sheets (or underwear, or t-shirts etc.) and it is for you.

Please join us in showing a unified opposition to this war at all times - we can smile in recognition and finally show the media and government - visually - just how many we are.

Good luck. Namaste

Good skills to everyone involved.

After posting this I'm going over the road to post my form in recorded delivery and am looking forward very much to adding my voice to the growing numbers who want to remind this Goverment who is boss here.

The Government serves the people Mister Blair, not the other way round!!!

The Government has never served the people...the government has only ever served the few who pull their strings.
Governments know that they are not the bosses.

Protest for truth.
Protest against fear.
Protest against money - unnecessarily made a necessity
Protest against contracts and mortgages.
Protest against Hawk jets and BAE Systems.
Protest against the World Bank and the involvement of the Bush family and friends in the Nazi regime.
Protest against the monarchy.
Protest for the truth.
Protest against protest.
Protest against advertising and mnd-control.
Protest against schools teaching us how to keep our brains locked, working at only 5%.
Protest for love.
We should all love infinite.
