No Borders Nottingham group had called for the demonstration at our shinny new [temporary] Speakers Corner, on the edge of the Market Square, Nottingham. Some who had gathered there were asylum seekers who have come here for help, and their supporters demonstrating their wish that these people should not be turned away.

As far as I know, this is the first use of the 'temporary' Speakers Corner. So, history in the making :-)
