Wouldn't promoting it be a little counter-productive? Surprise is the best tactic in my opinion (although they might be monitoring SE1 - Don't tell them your name, Pike!)

I don't think there is an easy answer, but what you walk past is what you accept and I am not willing to accept being hassled on the way to the doctor. Demonstrate outside parliament, not against private individuals.
We can also see how things have developed in America and we don't want that happening here.

I understand that our counter-demonstration did draw more attention to the actions of Abort64, but I'm not sure what else we could do to let these people know that we don't like what they are doing. They've said they will carry on coming to the clinic; do we just let them? I would welcome some comments because I would not want to make it worse for any woman who needs to go to the clinic.
