Report: 14 June 2014: Stall in Hitchin Market Square

The main campaign for our stall in Hitchin Market Square today was related to the police response to demonstrators in Brazil: One Goal, No Violence & Love Football, Love Human Rights:

87 people signed the petition reminding the Brazilian government that peaceful protest is not a crime.

We also took 21 photographs of people holding up one of two placards in protest at how protestors have been treated in Brazil; please go to our web album at

Some of our local group also collected today on the streets of Hitchin Town Centre, and we will post again once we have got the results from this fundraiser.
