This is a busy week for the HSBC 3 Defence Campaign with the benefit gig on Wednesday evening, and the demonstration against political policing on Saturday. As the focus of the anti-cuts movement is turning towards the savage attacks on the NHS and the possibility of widespread disruption and strikes on 3oth June the police will not sit back and watch. The police are there to defend those siphoning profits from the NHS, and all those benefiting from the cuts, against the anger of the people whose services are being cut. It is vital that we get active to protect our democratic rights, and expose the role of the police.
Wednesday 8th June, 7:30pm – Benefit Gig featuring Rathaus, 60ft Squid, and Negative Impulse. £1 minimum entry donation. Upstairs at the Bridge Hotel, Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
Gig arranged by supporters of the HSBC 3 Defence Campaign and the Anti-Cuts Network. All donations go towards the HSBC 3 Defence Fund.
Saturday 11th June, 12pm – Protest Against Political Policing. Grey’s Monument, Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
The protest will have an open microphone for anyone to speak out against political policing, with many different speakers confirmed. Please prepare something to read out, exposing the political role of the police, or about your experiences of the police as a political tool. There will be street theatre, and a picket of HSBC, the site of the arrests of Mark and Patrick to silence dissent against the government’s priorities.
Supported by: Anti Cuts Network, TCAR, Justice for Jaslyn Smith, Fight Racism! Fight Imperialism/RCG, Glasgow Defence Campaign, UKUncut, Sub-Version.
