More statements of support following recent arrests
The Glasgow Defence Campaign has received the following message of support from the Dundee Defend Services campaign which will be read out at Saturday's demonstration. As we have detailed on this blog, Dundee Defend Services supporters have also faced political policing - we thank them for their solidarity and stand with them in the struggle against the destruction of public services.
"Defend Dundee Services condemns the ongoing harassment of anti-cuts protestors by Strathclyde Police, and sends support to those arrested, whose only ‘crime’ has been to campaign against the destruction of our society. These young people set an example for us all, and we are sure that they will be followed by many more – protesting both against the cuts and against the misuse of police powers."
The GDC has received the following statement from Fight Racism! Fight Imperialism! on the arrests of more of their members in Glasgow: http://revolutionarycommunist.org/index.php/scotland/2167-strathclyde-police-attacks-frfi-supporters-and-anti-cuts-protestors-in-glasgow
