Megaphone Trial Continues. Picket Glasgow Sheriff Court 28 January!

Day two of the trial against the Glasgow Against ATOS 2 continues this Tuesday 28 January. The two were arrested for using a megaphone on a protest against cuts to sickness and disability benefit on 22 February 2013. Framed up charges against the two were dropped on 1 October after a Sheriff court ruled that their arrest and detention had been unlawful (compensation is now being sought). However the charge of using a megaphone was upheld.

One of the supporters arrested has penned this song to tell the story of their arrest and trial. The song opposes the criminalisation of protest against the cuts showing the hypocrisy of the real criminals robbing the poor and defending the bankers. We hope you enjoy it.

‘We`ve no even started! Fight The Cuts! Defend Free Speech!’
