Trial of FRFI supporter finally underway!
The trial of Fight Racism! Fight Imperialism! supporter Joey Simons finally got underway today at Glasgow District Court, fully ten months after his targetted arrest on a student demonstration on 9 December alongside another FRFI supporter, Dominic O'Hara. The Glasgow Defence Campaign again provided support and bodies at the court, alongside friends and family members. The police and prosecution were left in doubt that their campaign of political intimidation, perjury and violence against socialists and anti-cuts activists will not be met with silence.
The trial of Joey Simons continues on 5 and 6 December. A full report of the day's events in court will follow shortly. Suffice to say that Constable David Hay (A80) - seen by over 33,000 people (unsuccessfully) harassing an FRFI supporter in May of this year - will not have enjoyed his day in court!
