Red Wednesday

Decision of the Lord Speaker and Mr.Speaker to light the Houses of Parliament red on Red Wednesday: “It is a wonderful decision which underlines the increasing concern felt at the highest levels about the persecution of millions of people because of their beliefs. In this month of remembrance we are right to stand in solidarity with those who suffer. Our Houses of Parliament represent the struggle for liberty and freedom. In bathing Westminster in red we commemorate those who enjoy none of those same privileges and it is an earnest of our determination that they should.” David Alton – Lord Alton of Liverpool
