ABSTRACT
The article reports on efforts to subvert laws governing protest in London's Parliament Square and environs. In accordance with a 2005 law, single protestors are required to obtain the permission of the police before staging a demonstration. In response, in September 2006, over 100 protestors applied for individual permits for the same day, thus legally turning a lone protest into a mass one. Some of the causes espoused were serious, such as peace in the Middle East, while others were absurd, such as the demand for free chocolate from the government.
