*** NOTICE ***
Please remember that we have changed the time of the protest to 5pm. It is still taking place on August 23rd and at the Garden of Remembrance. The reason for this change is because there is another demonstration already taking place at 2pm. Apologies for any inconvenience.

This year is going to bigger and better then all previous years, guaranteed. Wait until you see what is in store this time round!
