Thursday, February 10 · 9:30am – 11:00am
Westminster Magistrates Court, 70 Horsferry Road, SW1P 2AX
As the state works round the clock to make arrests, raid homes, publish photos in the media and hunt down those who dare to challenge the violence of government and capitalism and the vicious cuts that threaten to tear our lives and communities apart, we must remember that they are doing this to intimidate and bully us out of action. Most of the people arrested under allegations of more serious offences will probably be dragged through a lengthy legal process that could go on for months, even years. This doesnt mean the fight has to stop there. That is why WAG are pleased to hear of a campaign emerging to fight these political arrests on a political level.
This THURSDAY, FEB 10TH, there will be a Solidarity Demo outside Westminister Magistrates Court – chosen because there will be plea hearings for some defendants on that day.
WAG FULLY SUPPORT THIS EMERGING SECTION OF THE MOVEMENT AND URGE EVERYONE TO GET DOWN ON THAT DEMO – We will not be intimidated and we will not be isolated!
Heres what the organisers have to say:
The Student Protest Solidarity Campaign, organised by arrestees and supporters has called for a solidarity demonstration outside Horsferry Magistrates Court on Thursday 10 February at 9.30am, In solidarity with all those arrested on the student protests.
Some of those arrested are in court that morning. The Student Protest Solidarity Campaign has been set up to support those arrested at the student protests who will be appearing in court over the coming months.
