Woman questioned by cops for reading The Independent on Downing Street

Terry Kirby/The Independent

LONDON, July 1 ~ An anti-Iraq war protester was questioned by police outside Downing Street because she was reading The Independent
Ms Charity Sweet, 40, and mother of three was holding a copy of Thursday’s edition which carried the headline: “Warning: if you read this newspaper you may be arrested under the Government’s anti-terror laws.” Inside was an article reprinted from Vanity Fair magazine which ran across the first three pages of that day’s issue of the newspaper. The article by writer Henry Porter, accused the Blair government of a sustained erosion of civil liberties.
As she sat outside Downing Street, where the British Prime Minister has his official residence at No. 10, she was approached and questioned by a police officer. When he had finished his inquiries she was astonished to be handed a form detailing the reasons for his interest which included “reading today’s Independent”.
Earlier this month Mr Steven Jago, an accountant and also an anti-war protester and friend of Ms Sweet, was arrested by police and later charged under the Serious and Organised Crime Act. He had been carrying some copies of the magazine which were confiscated by police. On Thursday afternoon, after seeing The Independent had reprinted the article, Ms Sweet decided she would demonstrate her solidarity with Mr Jago and went to Downing Street to find him. Unsuccessful, she bought a sandwich and decided to eat it while sitting down under a tree near the gated entrance to Downing Street and reading the newspaper. After some minutes she was interrupted and questioned by a patrolling Scotland Yard officer.
Ms Sweet, from Kent, said: “It was intrusive and ridiculous to think that I could not sit there and read the newspaper when I chose to. I don’t have any issues with the officer himself, he was perfectly polite and just doing his job. He asked me who I was and what I was doing there. I told him the publication of the article was history in the making and I could not think of a more appropriate place to sit down and read it. I don’t think I was causing a problem for anybody.” She was not cautioned or arrested. As is normal procedure, the officer handed Ms Sweet a form which set out why a particular person is stopped and, as can happen, searched. Under the section requiring a description of what the person stopped had been doing, the officer wrote: “Sitting outside D Street... And Reading Today’s Independent.” The form said the stop had been conducted “to check on welfare”.

First the vet arrest at a VA facility and now this. These guys are PEACEFUL protesters. Maybe not in England, but by our CONSTITUTION, we are allowed to protest peacefully. The present admin is in cohouts with the western governments in this policy of arresting peaceful protesters, and by doing so is guilty of not upholding the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, which he swore an oath to do.

That why we came over here, to escape the totalitarian regime mentality of Europe. Guess we couldn't get away for long. Our country's leaders have sold this country down the river.
