Tomorrow – Saturday 6th August – will see a demonstration through York as part of the Free Frank Fernie campaign. Protestors will be assembling at 1pm at the fountain on Parliament Street, before setting off on a demonstration which will pass by the various courts in York City Centre, ending with a rally back in Parliament Street. For more information on Frank’s case see freefrankfernie.info or the Facebook group.
This comes at the end of a week which has seen Jonnie Marbles jailed for throwing a plate of shaving foam, and the Metropolitan Police issue a frankly bizarre bulletin (later retracted) calling on businesses and the public to report anyone with anarchist sympathies (with the aid of a helpful definition of anarchism, lifted almost verbatim from Wikipedia). Perhaps the heat’s just getting to them, the poor dears.
Next weekend, Sunday 14th August, sees activists, supporters, friends, family and others descend on the Fulford Arms on Fulford Road for FrankFest – a day of music, comedy, food and drink to raise money and publicity for Frank. Come along, eat, drink, and get the lad a pint for when he comes out.
Love & rage,
