Support The Freedom Riders

Join lobby at Sheffield Magistrates Court 9am December 8 to defend Tony and George. 

The date of the court case is now rapidly approaching. Support for the rally outside the Magistrates Court is building and we need to make it as big as possible.

You may remember that Tony Nuttall and George Arthur were violently arrested by British Transport Police at a Freedom Riders rally in Sheffield station on June 23rd.

This followed a series of peaceful mass ‘Freedom Rides’ by elderly and disabled pass holders from March 31st. They are charged with obstructing the police and not having a valid ticket and are summonsed for a 5 day trial. Yes folks, that is a FIVE DAY trial for travelling without a ticket!

Durham Unite Community Branch are planning to go and offer support to George and Tony. Please contact the Community Centre if you would like to attend.
