Day 12: Birmingham to Reading
A scorching day with the tar melting on the country lanes from Stratford upon Avon.
Canada Day in Birmingham was marked with a protest outside the old Canadian Consulate building. Many see it shameful that the Federal Canadian and Provincial Quebec governments still fund the promotion and export of chrysotile asbestos to the Developing World.
We took the message from Birmingham to the Canadian High Commission in London the next day.
