Over the last few weeks we’ve had two demos in London and failed to update you so far. So here we go:
HMP Brixton Noise demo:
London ABC thought the jubilee was pants, so on the 5th of June 2012 we organised a noise demo at Brixton Prison to show solidarity with all those incarcerated in ‘her majesty’s prisons’. Despite the rain, between 30 and 40 people showed up and brought along a couple of awesome banners, really massive drums and some vegan cake. There was only one cop around for most of the demo. Despite the cop and a couple of over zealous screws unsuccessfully trying to lock some of us into the parking lot, there were no arrests and we were heard by some prisoners inside. There was even a mention of the demo on prison radio! Thanks a lot to everyone who came down and made noise, seeya next time.
Day of Action in solidarity with John Bowden:
Monday 11th of June was day of action in solidarity with long term anarchist prisoner John Bowden. In response to the recent attempts of prison-hired social worker Brenden Barnett to
sabotage John’s parole (see earlier posts), London ABC called a demonstration outside the parole board’s office at Grenadier House, Horseferry Road. The front desk said they wouldn’t help us, so we stood outside with a banner, flyering passers by and asking to speak to someone from the parole board about John’s case. In the end we managed to speak to someone. We really hope this shows the parole board and prison ‘services’ that there are people on the outside who are watching what they are doing. Because we are.
Free John Bowden now!
