(English) ANTI-MILITARIST COURT SOLIDARITY 4th Feb 2015

Court solidarity demonstration to support the last protester arrested at
the NATO summit, charged with assaulting a
police officer. There will be a short solidarity demonstration outside the
court from 9:30am on Tuesday 6th January 2015. Anti-militarist and
anti-police repression banners and well-wishers welcome. Afterwards some of
us will be supporting the defendants from the public gallery.

In south Wales during the NATO Summit security operation, we were host to
nearly 10 000 police officers in our city. No more than twenty people were
arrested in relation to demonstrating against the summit and the vast
Majority of those were either found not guilty or had their charges dropped.
Only two were convicted, one for obstructing the highway and the other for
causing a security guard distress by walking towards the UK Border Office
with a saucepan in their hand, (used to make a noise with as this was a
musical demonstartion).

During the NATO summit the police attempted to intimidate protesters from
demonstrating. People were followed and harassed. Evidence gathering teams,
were used to harass and intimidate the demonstrators.

The anti-NATO protesters sought to stop mass murder, displacement and
mutilation of civilians, people like you or me that just want to get on
with their lives but the West’s scramble for resources means they are
thrown into violence and conflict. Come and support the last NATO summit
defendant, if there was any justice it would be those responsible for
killing innocent people, not the victim of police agression –
