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.

Bereaved mother Pauline Campbell blocked a prison van taking a prisoner into the prison. She has done this many times before. The Police arrived and eventually she was persuaded to let the van proceed. She usually sticks it out until she is arrested but on this occasion it was not convenient.

22-09-2007 13:42An independent videographer was arrested on the Noborders march today at 12:45. From preliminary reports, it appears that the arrest occurred when he filmed cops who were policing the march (not a crime) and then refused to give his details when asked to do so. It is unclear to us why anyone should be required to provide his name and address when filming the police. The arrest occurred under Section 50 of the Police Reform Act, a recent piece of legislation allowing police to arrest someone who doesn't give details when suspected of anti-social behaviour, so perhaps filming cops is an anti-social activity.
