SolidarityThe Winning Weapon.

An appeal for solidarity from SACC:

Thur 5 Feb, from 1pm - SUWN Protest, Arbroath Job Centre Arbroath Job Centre, Chalmers Street, Arbroath
     SACC supporter Tony Cox has been threatened with arrest if he attends the scheduled SUWN (Scottish Unemployed Workers Network) protest in Arbroath on Thursday. He was arrested outside the centre last Thursday. He had been at the centre to assist and advocate for a vulnerable claimant. Centre staff denied his right to do this and called the police. He has been charged with threatening behaviour, refusing to give his name and address and resisting arrest.
     Tony was visited by two police officers on Wednesday evening to warn him that if he attends the scheduled protest meeting at Arbroath JC this Thursday he would be risking arrest for breaching his bail conditions. In fact, there is nothing in the bail conditions that forbids him from being in the vicinity of Arbroath JC. Tony says he will therefore be going along to the protest.
     Please go along to show your solidarity if you can, and circulate to anyone you know who lives near Arbroath.

    We trust that the police will facilitate this legitimate protest and will respect Tony's right to participate in it.
SUWN Defence Campaign meeting, Wednesday, 4th February, from 7pm, The Clubbie, Raglan Street, Dundee.
