London, 17/01/2012. Last night the original Parliament Square peace camp, set up by the late Brian Haw, was evicted.  A protest of over ten years' standing, the camp had held a permanent residence in front of the Houses of Parliament in central London since 2001. Police officers arrived at the Square and removed all tents and sleeping equipment from the sidewalk under the "Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act". This morning, despite the police actions and the arrest of Barbara Tucker, the situation at the camp looked as before, with anti-war placards, banners, flags and some campaigners, but with no tents. In the early morning the "Peace Strike Campaign" secured an injunction to prevent any eviction until March.
