Could have avoided a lot of ill-feeling and confusion amongst people.

I agree with all of the sentiments on his thread and have indeed signed the anti petition, but I can't get it out of my head that if was Abort63, I wouldn't be here and neither would my children (obviously).
I'm too confused to comment any further:)

The publicity we got was not courted by the way; the media were there when we arrived - presumably they were expecting action because of the video clip that went viral. Personally, I'm in favour of one last anti-demo with everyone just holding placards saying GO AWAY and having no communication with Abort67 whatsoever. Abort67 could be there indefinitely - because some of them are employees and that is their job - and we could just end up with a silly stand off. After that, I think we nag and nag and lobby for legislation for buffer zones to be created.
