    this group

    *apparently* their aim is to protest against arms, war, etc.....their protests are quite a regular occurence, the bigger protest always end up in a fight. As my DS14 summed it up earlier...."i thought they were against war"

    In my opinion, there will be members of the goup who are there to truly protest and stand up for their beliefs. Fa play to them, i believe in standing up for what you think is right or wrong. But as with all demos and protests there are those who are there purely for the confrontation.

    Hre's a link to the local newspaper, their a various links there which are interesting to read.

    do you know what makes me really angry though, all those people, some with children, who will have gone to Brighton for a bank Holiday day out only to be confronted by masked protesters rampaging through the streets....
