Defend the Right to Protest Meeting: the Olympics and Beyond

Standard

Tuesday 26th June, 7pm – 9pm

The Save Leyton Marsh group has been handled by the authorities in a punitive manner. In response to a campaign whose primary ambition was to protect a popular local green space, the Olympics authorities have served 3 High Court injunctions, three
peaceful protestors and a journalist have been jailed and Simon Moore has been issued with the first “Olympic Asbo”.

This meeting will bring together those who have been protesting against the loss of Leyton Marsh with activiss from Defend the Right to Protest, which challenges the Coalition’s sustained assault on all of our rights to object.
