On Wednesday, I attended the “Stop Disconnection Demo” to protest the Digital Economy Bill outside parliament.
I’ve been on a few protests in my time. Anti-war, anti-nukes, anti-tuition fees and the like. This was one of the most cheerful protests I’ve ever attended. The protesters were friendly and erudite. Passers-by seemed happy to take our literature. The speakers – while hard to hear – spoke with knowledge ad passion. Even the police (!) were charming and even took some of our leaflets.
Despite what El Reg reported, there was a good crowd there – maybe 250 people.
Overall, a worthwhile and useful day.
Please, write to your MP to ask them to debate this bill.
