PRESS RELEASE: BRIAN HAW: JANUARY 7TH 1949 - JUNE 18TH 2011.

DAY 3668: SUNDAY JUNE 19TH 2011.




Saturday 18th June 2011 

Babs was with Brian when sadly he passed away early on Saturday morning.

The Parliament Square Peace Campaign extend their deepest sympathies to Brian's family.

We would also like to thank all the very many kind people who supported and took such special care of Brian during his illness.

Brian showed great determination and courage during the many long hard years he led his Peace Campaign in Parliament Square, during which it is well documented that he was relentlessly persecuted by the authorities which eventually took its toll on his health.

Brian showed the same courage and determination in his battle with cancer. He was keenly aware of and deeply concerned that so many civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine did not have access to the same treatments that were made available to him.

Parliament, the police, and courts etc, should forever be ashamed of their disgraceful behaviour towards Brian.

Brian is an inspiration to all in our campaign and we appreciate the many messages of support for Brian whose spirit continues to guide us in the work we do.

We love & miss Brian very much. 

We know that it was Brian's greatest wish that everyone should take responsiblity to do what they can to stop the government murdering innocent civilians in ongoing illegal wars of aggression.

It is clear that if everyone showed the same courage as Brian, in challenging this government, that many lives would be saved, now.

We only have to look to the Arab World to see what is possible in what are historical times.

Further arrangements for Brian will be posted on our website.

Love, Peace, Justice For All,

Brian Haw's Parliament Square Peace Campaign.
