LETTER: How to protest in a democratic society

Sir: You report that green activists are to be targeted by Special Branch ("Crackdown on green terrorists", 29 December). On the same day, you mention that McDonald's is to open 50 more outlets in the UK in 1995. From which, I wonder, does the Bri tish public really need more protection?

Yours sincerely, PAUL DEACON Worthing Sussex 29 December
