URGENT: Police arrest more students following Glasgow University eviction
The GDC has received word that this morning, Strathclyde police officers arrested a young protester at his home in connection with the eviction carried out by police and security at the Free Hetherington at Glasgow University yesterday morning. It is likely that the police will be targeting more people throughout the day.
As they say - "Don't panic, organise!" It is crucial that the actions of the police are publicised and exposed. Phone Stewart Street police station to demand the release and ensure the safety of Aiden Turner. He was arrested at his home between 7.30 and 8am this morning and is facing serious charges. The FRFI supporters arrested on student demonstrations in December and January are facing near identical charges. Clearly a pattern is emerging. We cannot allow Strathclyde police's outrageous and politically-motivated actions to go unchallenged.
PHONE STEWART STREET POLICE STATION ON 0141 532 3000 AND DEMAND AIDEN'S RELEASE AND AN END TO TARGETED ARRESTS OF STUDENTS!
