British Protestors Win Case: A group of protestors who tried to assemble outside RAF Fairford, Britain in 2003 but were stopped by the Gloucestershire constabulary, won their case when the Law Lords overruled an earlier High Court decision, reports Stars and Stripes. The activists drove a bus toward RAF Fairford to protest the Iraq war, but British police stopped them a few miles from the base and escorted them back to London. The Law Lords ruled that the protestors’ rights to protest and freely assemble had been violated. The constabulary apologized to the group following the ruling.
