Witnesses Needed for Gaza Demos

e | 13.01.2010 23:49 | Palestine | Repression | Social Struggles

Were you at the Gaza Protests last year? Over 70 people are now facing serious charges and long prison sentences. This is the biggest trial since the anti Poll Tax campaign and the defendants should get our support!

* Please forward to anyone you know who may be able to help, or onto likely lists*

Did you film any of the demonstrations or know someone who did?

Both witnesses and film footage are needed - both to actual arrests and the general attitude and actions of the police. Witnesses who were present for the following times and places are especailly needed:

28th December, 29th December, 3rd January, 7th January, 8th January, 10th January, 17th January, 24th January

Locations - Kensington High St, outside the Israeli Embassy (majority of charges
relate to this location esp. between 16.45 and 17.45 on 10th January ); Starbucks, Shaftsbury Avenue (on the 10th and 24th of January), Notting Hill Gate (10th Januray - 15.45); Hyde Park Underpass (including just before and just after Underpass, on the 3rd January - 17.15-18.15 and outside the Israeli Embassy from 18.00).

Any footage showing any assault on protesters by the police at any stage during the demos is also vital.

Please contact if you can help, think you were at one of the places above or have footage of the demonstrations.

The defendants campaign will be having a meeting soon - watch this space.
