It is not for London ABC to comment on what happened in London and around the country last week, but we are currently in the process of organising prisoner support for people that have been remanded or sentenced to jail because of these disturbances.
If you know anyone who has been sentenced or remanded and would like support ,or you would like to help support prisoners, then please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you know anyone who has been arrested or who are worried they might be arrested please see the Legal Defense and Monitoring Group website. Have a look at their No Comment booklet for some good advice on what to do when arrested and the Bust Card for brief advice in a handy-to-carry form.
Also have a look at this document Don’t panic, Don’t talk
For an Anarchist perspective on the recent riots have a look at the Freedom Press article on the August Riots.
