Demonstrate against political policing....

Saturday 9th July, 12pm, Grey’s Monument, Newcastle

Last Saturday’s demonstration against political policing had to be called off after about 40 minutes due to torrential rain. It was a great shame as the turnout was good and lots of people were eager to speak out against what police have been doing at demonstrations, and what they represent. A crowd had gathered watching the speeches, and many members of the public were really supportive. A predictably large amount of police were present, as well as two English Defence League (EDL) members who attempted to challenge the demonstration with some repeated shouting of ‘get a job’ and ‘ get a wash’. Yet more confirmation of the anti-working class politics which lead the EDL to support the cuts, and the wars in the middle-east.

Join us on 9th July....

A demonstration to defend democratic rights and stand in solidarity with all those being targeted and criminalised by the police.

Called by HSBC 3 Defence Campaign. Supported by Anti-Cuts Network, Fight Racism! Fight Imperialism! Glasgow Defence Campaign, Subversion, Tyneside Community Action Against Racism, UK Uncut

As the government assault on public services begins we must oppose the police in their attacks on democratic rights and attempts to criminalise direct action against the cuts.

The only way we can defend our rights is by getting out onto the streets in a show of strength. Please join us.

Whose Streets?
 ! Our Streets! Whose Police?! Their Police!

With an open mic for people to speak out against police harassment, intimidation and racism.
