92-Year-Old UK Protester: Closing Post Office Outlet Violates Human Rights

[Western Morning News] WHEN 92-year-old great-grandmother Lillian Brown was spotted lying on her back in the middle of a busy high street, passers-by naturally dashed over to help her back on her feet.

But Mrs Brown had no intention of moving.

Far from being a frail pensioner in distress, Mrs Brown was a protester determined to bring the town to a standstill in anger at the closure of her local post office.

Eileen Noakes, 85, who joined the protest, said: “Any civilised government subsides public services, but in this country, every single thing is judged on whether it makes a profit. It’s an erosion of our civil liberties and human rights – that’s what we’re really protesting about.”
