ANTI-war protesters took to the streets of Northwood in 'blood-stained' wedding dresses and suits to demonstrate against aerial bombardments in Afghanistan.
The Northwood Die-In Committee, made up of various peace groups, marched from Northwood tube station to the military base in Watford Road on Wednesday.
The 42 protesters staged a "die-in" to mark the second anniversary of an attack on a wedding part in Afghanistan in which 47 civilians were killed by US bombing.
Protester Milan Rai said: "We wanted to do something that was respectful to the memory of the people who died and something that expressed the strength of our feeling.
"Fifteen people took part in the "die-in" and fake blood was scattered on the floor around them.
"Six people ended up being arrested and charged under the public disorder act because they refused to get up off the floor."
Hayes and Harlington MP John McDonnell also spoke at the beginning of the event and took part in the march. to express his concerns about the war in Afghanistan.
The march started at 11.30am at the station, headed off up Green Lane and Watford Road towards the base and the "die-in" was staged at the junction with Sandy Lane.
After the arrests the remaining protesters held a vigil before marching back to the station at about 2.30pm.
The organisers of this demonstration organised a similar "die-in" in Northwood in January 2003 when 400 protesters blocked the main gate of the military base for eight hours and 70 people were arrested for sitting in the road.
