We are a group of concerned citizens who have gathered in Parliament Square in order to promote peace and bring an end to the war in Afghanistan. We want to let our government and the rest of the world know that we are deeply troubled by the way our country is being run, and the way our tax money and resources are wasted on illegal and inhumane wars.
There are many issues being campaigned for at the Democracy Village as our beliefs are diverse yet we are united in our desire for change. Therefore we strive to use this public land as an open forum where any issue can be discussed and all ideas represented. We want to raise awareness and promote original thought through discussion, outreach, workshops and people's assembly.
We are entirely non-violent but actively resist any attempt to suppress our rights of assembly and free speech. We will remain here until our aims are achieved.
We believe that big changes begin with local action and local action begins in your own front garden. That is why we have created this democratic, self-sufficient village directly in the front garden of our MPs, who continue to ignore our ongoing environmental, social and economic issues.
You are hereby invited to come along and get involved :-).
THIS IS WHAT DEMOCRACY LOOKS LIKE!
