Successful Benefit Gig Builds HSBC 3 Defence Fund

Tonight’s benefit gig, featuring Negative Impulse, 60ft Squid, and Rathaus managed to raise over £50 towards the HSBC 3 defence fund. The three great performances from the bands were accompanied by speeches from two of the HSBC 3 underlining the importance of political defence campaigns, and standing up for our democratic rights. As Mark Pearson, one defendant, said in his speech ‘It is clear to us that the HSBC 3 will not win their campaign in the courts, but on the streets!’

It is important we are all opposing police attacks on protestors through consistent street action. This saturday’s demonstration against political policing will be a great opportunity to challenge the political role of the police. Join us at 12pm at Grey’s Monument in Newcastle. Bring a speech against political policing!
