    THE LONDON OLYMPIC TORCH RELAY AND PEACEFUL PROTEST ROAD BLOCKADE UK
     
    Welcome to the nations largest protest for a single cause. The worldwide peaceful protest is back and bigger than ever before.
     
    You choose to protest about the fuel prices, you choose to protest about blood sports, you choose to visit Loch Ness and convince people that the Loch Ness monster exists etc…..now you choose to get behind the blockading of all major highways in the UK. M25, M4, M5, M1, M23, M6 etc……this would cause major disruption around the country. Spanning from Lands End to Jonh O’ Groats.
     
    The mission for this protest is to have all stolen children immediately returned to their parents where they belong.
     
    Mission statement:
     
    This statement of intent is just that, it states our intent to – within the laws and legal frameworks of this realm – bring about justice for our children and those victims of illegal practices performed by statutory bodies. We are making this statement with no hidden agendas and in concise, unequivocal terms to ensure absolute transparency of our meaning and intention to bring about meaningful and fair justice to a system that serves only those in power. When good people seeking justice and fairness are silenced by a system that is there to protect the people and that system has been abused by those in power, then it is time to have our voices heard in numbers. When families are split apart supposedly for the welfare of the children and other than causing emotional distress to the child, serves only to perpetuate a financial system. When those in power have been given the power by those that have elected them and are no longer serving the interests of the people, then the people have little recourse but to take actions until their voices heard and this nation is returned to true democracy.
     
    As you take part in this protest, be prepared for a long, long wait. We are going to bring the country to a complete hault by blockading all major motorways and also A roads. This will have a major impact on the Prime Ministers daily schedule not to mention the disruption and chaos it will cause. As previously stated, we intend to blockade all major motorways including the following: M25, M4, M5, M1, M23, M6. During the protest, you must remember to KEEP THE HARD SHOULDERS OPEN AND FREE OF TRAFFICK. This is so the emergency services can get through. This is a peaceful demonstration of people’s power.
     
    For more information, please contact One voice for the kids via our site or Facebook or, alternatively, you contact us via telephone on; 08456 976881 (during normal office hours 9am to 5pm Mon-Fri)
     
    Let it be known that we seek to redress the issues within the legal frameworks of this (once fair) land and to bring them into the public domain in order to enlighten and educate the citizens, and to seek methods by which these issues shall be corrected. The blockade will only cease once the Prime Minister agrees to meet our steering committee.
