SOCPA - gordon brown's hypocricy over burmese protests

27-09-2007 18:17

while 'red' ken and his gla can offer no explanation for the continued 2-metre high fencing around parliament square, and while burmese demonstrators are hassled by inspector price of the met for not asking permission to protest about the sudden crackdown by the burmese military, we are still waiting for gordon brown to honour his 'promise' of repealing the SOCPA law banning 'unauthorised' protest near parliament.

NOT GUILTY! Pauline Campbell strikes important blow for women prisoners.

27-09-2007 15:26

Another death provokes another demo by Pauline Campbell.
Yesterday Pauline Campbell was found not guilty of blocking the highway at North Avon magistrates court. The trial followed an incident at the prisons gates on January 24th this year. Pauline had been arrested at the same prison (HMP Eastwood Park) the previous October. She was released without charge. See:

This time the Police had clearly had enough and were determined to get a conviction. In January Pauline was protesting at the death of Caroline Powell a mother of five who had been found dead in her cell. When Pauline did her usual action of blocking the Prison van trying to enter it took the local Police nearly an hour and a half to show up. When they arrived they came prepared with 3 vehicles 6 officers and an evidence gathering cameraman. It was very clear that this time they intended to get a conviction.

Sadly for the cops they could not be bothered (amongst other things) to check the local boundaries, i.e. where the highway finished and the crown property started. They also did not endear themselves to the court by changing the charge against Pauline midway through the process. Her acquittal is a victory for prisoner rights campaigners everywhere.

The photos below have not been published until now for legal reasons.

A protestor arrested by this wanker, for allegedly saying wanker, on the street, to her friend on the way to a protest. The reasoning given was that children might have hear it, she did not shout it, she just said it to her friend, possibly about the cop, who only proved her right by arresting her.
What a wanker!

Policing the No Border Camp

27-09-2007 13:25

There was nothing all that unusual about the policing of the Gatwick No Border Camp last week: intimidation and harassment, spin and lies, unlawful arrests.. all too familiar to those who've been around enough to realise that the police are not only about stopping crime and fighting terrorism. But it is always worth knowing the details of exactly what happened, how and why.
