11-11-2004 08:34Let's outline a scenario:
This morning, a group of activists have set up a blockade outside the
premises of Agrexco-UK. (Carmel House, Swallowfield Way, Hayes, Middlesex
UB3 1DQ - Tel: 020-8848 7788 ).
But these laws are offensive to "common law" and that is why they were not drafted into legislation and properly debated.

10-11-2004 20:00TANKS APPEAR AT ANTI-WAR PROTEST IN WESTWOOD
LOS ANGELES, November 9, 2004 - At 7:50 PM armored tanks showed up at an anti-war protest in front of the federal building in Westwood.
The tanks circled the block twice, the second time parking themselves in the street and directly in front of the area where most of the protesters were gathered.
Enraged, some of the people attempted to block the tanks, but police quickly cleared the street.
The people continued to protest the presence of the tanks, but after about ten minutes the tanks drove off. It is unclear as to why the tanks were deployed to this location.
