Free Kate McCann Vigil, HMP Birmingham Prison
Free Kate McCann Vigil, Free All Political Prisoners.
Kate has been involved in lock-ons and peaceful direct action at Barton Moss Community Protection Camp. Now, a judge has sent Kate to jail until 29th April for breaching bail – by going back to the Camp to help clean it up, after the iGas drilling rig left site and the Protectors packed up to move to another fracking frontline.
Experience with the Greater Manchester Police leads observers to believe that this is ‘political policing’. Kate clearly presents no danger to the public.
Kate McCann is now listed by Green and Black Cross as a political prisoner.
On an update about the ONN livestreamers, Tristan Woodwards who was arrested during the last week of the camp, had his smart phone confiscated and kept as evidence. The smart phones are used for observing and using live video as witness to the work of the protectors. Livestream means that no footage would be left in the phone memory, as everything is uploaded live on the internet without editing. So the only reason to keep the phone is to prevent the livestreamers from doing their work of protecting the protectors.
There are now two more Protection Camps starting. Daneshill Nottinghamshire and Upton Cheshire.
Tristan is using a donated phone for the moment.
If you can assist the ONN livestreamers in their work, please contact us.
