HSBC3 Appeal approaches - the time for solidarity!

The most crucial time of support for the HSBC3 Defence Campaign approaches,with the appeal against Mark and Patrick’s unjust convictions happening on Tuesday the 27th and Wednesday the 28th of September. This is the vital event for the campaign, and the main opportunity to show the public opposition to the acceleration of attacks on democratic rights. Big, well publicised demonstrations outside the Crown Court on both days of the trial will show the state that we will not stand by whilst the right to peaceful protest is robbed from us. 

There is an urgent need to speak out against the cuts, from attacks on healthcare to benefits, and housing to public services. It is necessary to defend those who come under attack whilst speaking out, to show that we refuse to be criminalised for fighting back.

Stand with us from 9am and defend the anti-cuts movement!

9am Tuesday 27th and Wednesday 28th September – Crown Court, Quayside, Newcastle.
