Profile of Nicholas Atkinson
I saw in my local paper that a coach was leaving for the protest in London, Organised by the Quakers (i think). I felt i had to do something but had no means of getting myself to London so despite being an Atheist, i kept quiet as i have no problem with others beleifs and joined them for the journey. When on the coach i found my self sitting next to a scientist and we nattered away, i remember being particularly fascinated about some subjects.
On arriving we lost the group and marched with the crowd Hyde Park and listened to the speakers, If i recall i was particularly moved by Tony Ben's speach. We then made our way back to the coach and home. I was deeply impacted when we were ignored.
I am not a man full of facts and figures, I simply beleive that the best of Humankind will only be found in Peacful living.
I have had to rush this as i am only able to use timed use computers at the moment. I hope it is of some use.
I still have the plackard they gave us, The Green/Black/White one with 'Not in My Name' on one side.
I will upload a pic of me and it as soon as i can for my profile pic.
Thankyou for your efforts.
