The protest was against the contined occupation of Iraq, and Britain's complicity in the actions there. The banner read 'Refuse to Fight. Solidarity with the Iraqi people.' The fliers - whose text will hopefully go up later - explained in more detail some of the things going on in Iraq at the moment and how the UK troops are responsible for the continuation of the occupation.
People were either happy to see us or too focused on their commute to really notice anything other than the bus stop.
The group's bags were searched under the terrorism act allegedly because we might have spray cans to write 'terrorist graffiti', unfortunately the police officer declined to write that on our stop and search forms, instead just writing that he'd been looking for 'articles related to terrorism', which is a shame!
