Somewhere to sort out a feature article on Brian Haw, to fill out the one that has been started.

Early on Saturday morning, veteran peace protester Brian Haw passed away in his sleep. A long-term chain smoker, he had been diagnosed in September 2010 with lung cancer, and despite starting treatment almost immediately at St Thomas's hospital, and subsequently spending six months in Germany for private treatment, he tragically lost his battle with the disease.

Brian first came to Parliament Square in July 2001 to protest the economic sanctions placed on Iraq by the West. These sanctions had led to the unnecessary deaths of many thousands of innocent men, women and children, and having witnessed the suffering and premature death of one of his own children, Brian felt obliged to act. His objections to conflict were certainly heartfelt having visited the Killing Fields of Cambodia, even travelling to Iraq in the early nineties and seeing for himself the impact UK foreign policy on the people of Iraq.
