Demonstrating on Saturday - doing it the Quaker way

Even our own Bolton News seems to have noticed the big Stop the War / CND / British Muslim Initiative demo that's to take place in Manchester this Saturday. One local activist is quoted as saying it'll be the biggest demonstration in Manchester in 160 years. In the middle of the planned march route is Manchester Quaker Meeting House and from 12.00-1.00pm there will be a silent vigil for peace for any who wish to join that before the demo itself at 1.00pm. Don't know how easy it will be to get to the Meeting House at that time, with police, crowds etc in the are, so if it's important for you to be there, plan to get there earlier rather than later.
