Protest could become expensive in Britain
#1
From http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/fe...est-police

Metropolitan Police in London "will no longer facilitate the temporary closure of roads along the agreed route", meaning that protesters will have to pay for private security services.

Quote:The Met spokeswoman said the police's core responsibilities were "preventing and detecting crime, maintenance of the Queen's Peace and protecting life and property".

I wonder under which category the guarding of Julian Assange in the Equadorian Embassy falls.
The most relevant literature regarding what happened since September 11, 2001 is George Orwell's "1984".

Bugger that. Just march any way. The streets belong to all. Don't even have to ask 'permission' though often there is a courtesy notice of plans to march.
