Almost 100 people have attended the UK's first euthanasia workshop run by an Australian doctor.
Dr Philip Nitschke showed videos and talked about equipment and drugs needed to end a life, at the Hamilton Hall Hotel in Bournemouth, Dorset.
The doctor was held at Heathrow Airport under the Immigration and Asylum Act when he arrived in the UK on Saturday but was granted leave to stay.
Opponents say vulnerable people may be influenced by him "inappropriately".
Charles Beech, 76, from Ringwood, went to the workshop.
He said: "I often observe elderly people suffering long, lingering deaths.
"Let's get it organised, let's be fair to everyone.
"Why should it be so important for people to suffer an awful life, it is so wrong. In pain, agony and despair, it should be stopped."
The doctor, from Darwin, administered lethal injections to end four patients' lives after voluntary euthanasia was made legal in Australia's Northern Territory in 1996.
The Australian federal government overturned the law nine months later.
