An important new film about the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act which was passed in order to get rid of Brian Haw, the lone protester who has camped outside Parliament for more than 6 years.
His ever-increasing display of powerful and artistic banners challenged the politicians who voted for the invasion of Iraq. Last year police swooped and unlawfully removed most of his display, but he has continued his successful battle to remain outside Westminster,
The film shows the enormous creativity and tenacity of Brian and other campaigners appalled at the idea that we have to ask for permission to protest near Parliament.
Featuring an original music soundtrack and contributions from all the main players who have challenged this law.
This film is at times frightening, funny, shocking and deeply-moving.
