The Newcastle 14 (N14) will have no charges brought against them. On Thursday 1 August, the defendants received no further action (NFA) from Northumbria Police. The campaign has fought continuously since the arrests on 25 May and would like to thank you all for the support it has received. On Wednesday 7 August there will be a celebration outside Etal Lane Police station at 12pm.
This is a huge victory against political policing, which would not have been possible without the Newcastle 14 Defence Campaign (N14DC). However, as there have been no charges brought, the question must be asked: on what grounds were the N14 arrested? In the lead-up to the arrests, what role did Newcastle Unites play? Who can be held to account for the unjustifiable arrests of 14 anti-racist-protestors?
These questions must be answered. Join us and campaign to hold those responsible for the arrests accountable.
Victory to N14! No to political policing!
