Three months before the 10th anniversary of his continuing anti-war protest in Parliament Square, Brian Haw has lost his battle against eviction at the High Court. In a case brought by London Mayor Boris Johnson, a judge ruled that Mr Haw must leave his so-called "Democracy Village".
But the ruling states only that he cannot sleep on the grass area. The surrounding pavement is controlled by Westminster council, which has brought a separate case. Mr Haw, who is in Germany having treatment for lung cancer, plans to appeal.
