However, as yet, nothing has happened. We still have no right to democractic protest around the seat of Government.
So, in Parliament square at 1 o clock on the 2nd of May 2010 there is due to be a non-protest. There will be people waving banners that don't say anything, handing out leaflets with nothing on them, holding megaphones that don't work, not shouting or chanting, in fact not doing anything that could be construed as a demonstration. They certainly won't be protesting about the SOCPA legislation. They're not allowed to.
You shouldn't protest either.
In fact, don't protest with us and as many of your friends as you can muster .
Bring blank banners, blank placards, hand out blank flyers, mouth noiselessly into silent megaphones and hum wordlessly to the tune of protest songs.
Whatever you do, remember.
This ISN'T a protest.
That would be illegal.
