It looks like there are some protests that have been happening in the UK concerning the possibilities of job cuts in the British Waterways staff. The protests seem to involve the group of "Save our Waterways" using their boats to blockade canals.

I guess when the canal is only 7′ wide, its not hard to block 🙂

I hope things get worked out soon and allow the free flow of traffic and the support of the canal workers and infrastructure that is needed to keep this great national (and international) resource alive and well.
