Terri Oaks, who has been protesting the arrest in Cambridge said:
"We are appalled that the government has so little respect for the right to protest that they are arresting people across the country for even thinking about protesting at the Royal Wedding. The public is footing the £20 million bill for the wedding, but we are being denied the right to voice our opinions, just as the government has been suppressing our right to protest against the welfare cuts which are hitting the poorest the hardest."
