the notes from todays meeting..

1) Jillian reports back from the police negotiations. The ban of any 
type of march in the city center on wednesday and thursday is agreed to 
be the most outragous violation of civil liberties.  It is agreed to 
hold a protest for the right to protest on wednesday 15th 5.30 pm on 
Devonshire Green, The tone of the demo will be quite. People will have 
black banners and posters that have words written and black out 
unreadable like in classified documents. Theatric and other expressions 
of our silent protest are prepared. People are invited to propose more 
ideas. Jillian and John go on with the petition that has been discussed 
on the list already. A court case is brought forward against the 
city/police for the right to protest.

TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS, COLLEGES and FAMILIES about the ban on demos and 
marching. Make them join the protest for the right to protest. Write 
letters to the newspaper, call your local counciller.  We need 
solicitors and legal advisers, so if you have any, hand them over.
