Brian Haw

Peace campaigner Brian Haw dies

Peace campaigner Brian Haw has died after “a long hard fight” against lung cancer, his family has announced. Mr Haw, 62, set up a camp in London’s Parliament Square in 2001 in protest against UK and US foreign policy. In March 2011, a High Court ruling obtained by London’s mayor forced him to move his camp on to the pavement.

4th anniversary of Gilly Mundy’s death

17 March 2011 will mark four years since the death of one of the stalwarts of the campaign movement against deaths in police custody and abuse by police and prison officers in the United Kingdom. Gilly saved three lives and restored the sight of two others when he donated his organs after his death in March 2007.

As a campaigner and activist, Gilly Singh Mundy, who died suddenly aged 36, managed to cram so much into his own life and touch the lives of many in a positive, life-affirming way.
