edwin, brian, and little friends
supporters gather to give him a happy send-off
the first coins in his collection bucket
edwin has been a staunch supporter of brian haw's for many months now, sleeping over at the square and helping protect brian from harm. he has now decided to do his 'outreach' project, as he is concerned that people outside london are even more oblivious to the government assaults on our freedoms than those in the capital.
some children helped start his collection bucket which he hopes will help fund his work. brian gave a short emotional speech thanking edwin for his care and support, and then, banner in hand and kitbag on his back, he set off in the blazing sunshine, heading west out of the square.
he will be missed.
