Brian Haw: As Long As It Takes

Published on 14th March 2016 by

Brian Haw was an English peace protester who spent almost ten years living in a peace camp that he erected in Parliament Square in London, it was a protest against UK and US foreign policy – particularly the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He decorated his camp with numerous disturbing images which depicted the reality of the wars in the Middle East. Haw left his wife and seven children in order to live in his encampment.

As Long As It Takes is a low budget 2003 documentary by Raj Yagnik, the first of several to be produced about Haw. He was later the subject of the 2005 documentary A Man Called Brian by Mahmoud Shoolizadeh (unfortunately not currently available to watch for free online), and the documentary Brian Haw: Life of Brian by Matthew Platts-Mills.
