Defend the Right to Protest – 2 events
Defend the Right to Protest have announced two new events in March 2012.
The first is an open meeting, “Stand up for justice” to be held at Friends Meeting House, London on Monday 5 March at 7pm. Speakers include Imran Khan (lawyer), Liam Burns (NUS president), Alfie Meadows and others.
Alfie himself will face a trial beginning on 26 March at Kingston Crown Court despite being nearly killed by a blow from a police baton during the demonstrations outside parliament in December 2010. A protest in support is organised in front of the court at 9am on the 26th.
