Letters: Protest with impact

Sir: Dr Jenny Tonge is quite right in her assessment (letter, 24 September) apart from one point - in most cases, demonstrations in this country concerning other countries do not generally interest most of us, because we are allowed to do it and the demonstrators are looked upon (generally) as being slightly weird.

However, when one of "our weirdos" is incarcerated/killed, in a foreign country, for expressing their opinions - it concentrates the parochial mind somewhat. Sad but - no pain, no gain?
