BRIAN HAW WINS RIGHT TO DEMONSTRATE

‘We won, as we should have done, because it was wrong and the police were wrong’, anti-war protester Brian Haw declared to cheering supporters after winning his latest legal battle to maintain his demonstration in Parliament Square.

Police claimed Haw, 57, from Redditch, Worcestershire, posed a threat as terrorists could hide bombs under his many banners and placards.

But District Judge Quentin Purdy said he had not breached conditions imposed on him by the Metropolitan Police under the new Serious Organised Crime and Police Act (Socpa), which puts limits on demonstrations within one kilometre of the Houses of Parliament.
