A chronicle of anti-war resistance and protest in London over the past decade, Chester Yang’s film follows the story of Brian Haw, the veteran peace campaigner who occupied Parliament Square from 2001 up until his death in 2011. His legal battle with the UK authorities were the stuff of headlines, as the Labour government introduced new laws to try and evict him and his supporters and restricted the right to protest in the capital. An insightful exploration of what it means to live in a democracy.
