Free Frankie: updates

Last night saw the first meeting of a group to support Frank Fernie, the York student jailed for twelve months after throwing two sticks during the 26th March protests. By way of comparison, after two years of legal bickering no-one has as yet been prosecuted for the police murder of Ian Tomlinson for committing the heinous crime of…trying to make his way home.

To paraphrase the late Bill Hicks, I don’t want to come across as bitter, jaded or cynical…but I am, so that’s how it comes out.

The support meeting was attended by a mixture of anti-cuts campaigners and friends and family of Frankie. A Facebook group has been set up, as has a support site, while the meeting itself agreed to launch a campaign to support him and demand his release. Some other updates:
