No wonder it cost so much...It was like a ring of defence....no one could get near...
Whatever happened to free speech? and the right to protest? oh I forgot we do not have the right to protest unless previously arranged with the police! We are told where we can stand and for how long....We now live in a world of fear...where we are no longer safe to stand up for the underdog in case we become incarcerated.
You have to pay to attend the conference if you can afford it! If you speak up then you will be physically thrown out!!
conference: collins universal dictionary
a meeting for discussion of problems, etc. and interchange of views, a consultation.

And it has cost a fortune not to have our say!

Whatever happened to free speech? and the right to protest? oh I forgot we do not have the right to protest unless previously arranged with the police. We are told where we can stand and for how long....We now live in a world of manufactured fear...making it impossible to get near anyone official without sadly becoming a suspect.... we are no longer safe to stand up for the underdog in case we become incarcerated....
