Newcastle 14 and their supporters speak out against political policing Saturday 15th June 2013

On Saturday 15th June the N14 campaign took to the streets to speak-out against political policing and racism. They set up at Haymarket, the scene of the arrests that had taken place three weeks previously and spoke on a P.A. system about the arrests and the role of the police in Britain: to protect the government’s agenda of austerity, war and privatisation and keep dissent off the streets. They performed street theatre and were clear that this was not only about defending the 14 arrested but defending democratic rights for people in local communities in Byker, Walker and Newbiggin Hall fighting back against the bedroom tax and people standing in solidarity with the Bangladeshi workers after the Rana Plaza collapse.

We will not be forced off the streets, we will not be silenced. Our message is simple – we are angry and we are organised, whether the state comes for one or fourteen of us it will have to be prepared to take us all on. Get involved to defend the right to protest!
