Goodbye, Welcome, my ‘Revolution’…Egypt, The Military, The Brotherhood & Tamarod

30 May: Banners over the M32

Change of court venue - see addition below

My banners (pictured) were seized by Bristol police at the end of May, at the start of a Bradley (Chelsea) Manning solidarity tour of Bristol and south Wales and on the eve of the Manning show trial in the U.S.
