War criminals free, but protesters get prison - help needed

It is outrageous that while the United Nations Goldstone Report -- which listed Israel's war crimes in its attack on Gaza and called for those responsible to be held to account -- has been ignored, those who demonstrated against these crimes at the time are being imprisoned for their protests.

Over 60 protestors who joined the major demonstrations in January 2009, which brought over 100,000 on to London's streets, have been charged with 'violent disorder' offences. Prison sentences have already been handed down by the courts.

To help those that have been charged we need footage, photograph or film, of any of the protests outside the Israeli Embassy or of the demonstrations on the 3rd, 10th or 17th January 2009.
