01-05-2011 15:57STOP THESE ATTACKS ON OUR RIGHT TO PROTEST
Protest outside the hearing of Fortnum & Mason anti-cuts occupiers
MONDAY 9th MAY, 9am
CITY WESTMINSTER COURT
70 Horseferry Road, London SW1P 2AX
Called by Defend The Right To Protest, in support of the Fortnum145 defendants campaign - www.fortnum145.org - details at end, below
On 26 March, around 140 people were arrested and detained for taking part in the occupation of Fortnum & Mason to highlight tax avoidance. Their protest was peaceful, as documented by eyewitness reports and video footage. They were told by police that they were free to leave – but as soon as the protestors left the building they were arrested. The occupiers now face charges of aggravated trespass and the possibility of a prison sentence.
