Over 500 campaigners rallied in the city on 2nd November to
show their opposition to any war on Iraq. Mohinder Farma of the
Indian Workers' Association told the marchers that the Iraqi
people had suffered for over a decade as the direct result of
Anglo-British policies.

Human rights activists held a vigil outside the Kentish Town
offices of the Lonely Planet travel guides on 8th November, in
protest at the publishers' continued support of the junta that rules
Burma. Yvette Mahon of the Burma Campaign UK said, "tourism
provides a vital source of income for the military dictatorship in
Burma. Lonely Planet's guide encourages people to visit".

Activists from the National Pensioners Convention (NPC) staged
a rally on 11th November, to protest at the falling value of their
pensions. A representative of the NPC said many pensioners felt
under-valued, particularly in view of the sacrifices their generation
had been expected to make during the Second World War.
The rally came just days after a warning by housing charity Shelter
that former service personnel are at a greatly increased risk of
homelessness. The organisation revealed on 8th November that
over a quarter of homeless people have been in the state's armed
gangs at some stage.

Basque activists are holding a demonstration outside the Spanish
Embassy on 16th November. This is to mark the 27th anniversary
of Franco's death, and to protest at the policies of the Partido
Popular, Spain's governing party and Franco's political
descendants. Meet at 12 noon outside the embassy at 39 Chesham
