Parliament Square breastfeeding demonstration & presentation of petition/open letter

If you're planning to come to our family-friendly Breastfeeding Rally in London on Friday, July 18th, please note we are now meeting directly in Parliament Square (NOT Hyde Park) [spread the message to your friends!!!!]...and after presenting the petition, we can gather informally at Victoria Tower Gardens behind parliament to continue eating, drinking and, of course, chatting!

Meeting at parliament squ. will make it accessible for people with the 'littlest' walkers among them. Don't forget to bring food, drinks, hats/shading and whatever else you and your family need to be comfortable while there.

I'd love to hear of the placards you and your family are making, and what messages you're putting on them. My girls (now aged 12 and 10.5) are busy coming up with all sorts of things!
(I might need to do a bit of censoring LOL)

The nearest tubes are Westminster and St James's Park. If you and your family are coming along, please drop me a note in the comments section or by email ~ so I can get a 'rough' idea of numbers in order to co-ordinate my stewards.

Have a fabulous week, Veronika

Unfortunately my daugher isn't the best traveller so we can't make the journey down from Warrington but I hope the rally goes well and you have a fantastic day.

Oh I would so want to come but we're going on holiday on the 20th and I'll have my hands full getting everything sorted for then! I do hope all goes well and you all have a nice time.
Sending my virtual support for now.

I'm hoping to come to London, only one of my 4 older children has chosen to come with me and my toddler. The headteacher at his school has given permission for him to be absent to attend.
