Alec R. Costandinos
Alec R. Costandinos’ recording career may have been short-lived, but the Euro-disco producer dominated the disco world during his late-’70s reign. After having made

a name for himself after co-writing Cerrone’s “Love in C Minor” in 1977, Costandinos signed to the French label Barclay where he released his first record as Love and Kisses. This self-titled 1977 LP featured the timeless disco hit “I’ve Found Love (Now That I’ve Found You).” Soon he was releasing hit records on America’s most recognized disco label, Casablanca. Perhaps more importantly, though, he introduced the concept album to dancefloor music with his well-regarded Romeo & Juliet album in 1977, followed by a number of other less successful conceptual efforts. He became best known for “I’ve Found Love,” "Romeo and Juliet," and “Thank God It’s Friday” (the theme song to the movie of the same name), but literally disappeared after a prolific 1977 to 1979 run.

Brian Haw
All round groovy guy who Scott met at the demos against the Iraq War in 2003

When he started in June 2001, Mr Haw, a father of seven from Worchestershire, had only a few signs bearing the names of young children who had died as a result of economic sanctions on Iraq. He supplemented these with carefully painted banners pointing out to both the politicians and the public the huge suffering that the sanctions policy, supported by the UK government supported, inflicted on the people of Iraq.

Over the months, people began to visit him and bring placards they themselves had made. With the events of 11 September 2001 and the declaration of the ‘war on terrorism’, Brian’s protest grew in size and reputation. He has had numerous visitors from all over the world, many leaving placards with messages of peace, helping to create what is now a powerful display which challenges the government’s foreign policy. The international media have broadcast his message around the world in documentaries, news reports and interviews.

In October 2002 he won a major legal victory when the High Court refused to grant an injunction to Westminster Council to remove him from Parliament Square. The judge ruled that Mr Haw was exercising his right to freedom of speech and the pavement obstruction was not unreasonable.

Mr Haw said, "I have had the people of the world on this pavement. Peace is more popular than Parliament."

He added "Contrary to the hopes of the government that protest will end now that the war on Iraq is said to be over, I will not go away. Its not over for people in Iraq – thousands more of the people are now dead and the occupiers are still there. I feel so incensed – we are talking about dropping bombs on people, on murdering people. Its not enough to say we don’t mean to – it doesn’t make it alright. And the murderers are allowed to profit from

their crimes. How can humanity, the world, allow this blatant smash and grab?

"They went ahead no matter how much people protested and we are now being asked to just accept it. I can’t accept it. Here is a picture of a little girl with the back of her head blown off. All you have to do is put yourself in the place of this girl’s parents. They will never thank us for ‘liberating’ them. And now we have ‘saved’ them, we are selling them water."

Brian Haw can be visited in Parliament Square at any time.

Demoracy
An as yet unrealised system of government in which the people do the governing.

Many people claim to be living in democracies (see USA). They’re all lying and are mostly living in Republics but are too stupid to spot the difference.
