Smash EDO: Support for upcoming court cases

Smasher | 06.02.2012 18:46 | Smash EDO | Policing | Terror War | South Coast | World

Smash EDO have two court cases coming up this week. Court support would be much appreciated.

Wednesday 8th of February, Brighton Magistrates Court.

Demo outside court from 9.30, then support inside for defendant accused of having banged the EDO fence with a stone in late 2010.

Thursday 9th of February, Royal Courts of Justice, the Strand, London WC2A 2LL

Demo from 9am.

87 year old anti-war activist John Catt is bringing a Judicial Review challenging the legality of the publicly funded, secret 'domestic extremist' intelligence database run by the discredited National Public Order Intelligence Unit (NPOIU) under the command of ACPO and/or the Metropolitan Police.

John Catt is challenging the legality of the database under Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights (right to private life), the Data Protection Act 1998 (breach of legislation on personal and sensitive personal data) and on the basis that it is irrational. He is calling for the destruction of the data held about him. If successful, the case could have far reaching consequences for 'Big Brother' State surveillance and intelligence gathering of protesters and dissidents.
