Attempts to silence the group through the criminalisation of progressive politics in football are not isolated from the events taking place outside stadiums.
It’s essential that all progressive forces stand together. Public unity, exposure and action is a means of defence. Solidarity court protests for those facing charges, the organisation of fundraisers to pay off fines, support for the families of people targeted, and effective public exposure of cases are all vital.
We must make clear to the police and the ‘elites’ who they serve that if they attack us they will be met with a united, public, organised and political response.
