Housing Meetings and Court Protests not allowed in Glasgow? 18 March Update
Tonight’s meeting ‘Housing is in Crisis: What Can We Do About It?’ organised by Glasgow
Games Monitor 2014 and Unite Community Union has been shut down by the Board of
Directors at Bridgeton Community Learning Campus (BCLC) who have chosen to
cancel the venue booking. The statement from Games Monitor in response to this attack
on the democratic right to free speech and organisation can be viewed by clicking here
In a separate but no unrelated turn of events the time
and court number of the Glasgow Sheriff Court ‘megaphone trial’ due to conclude
tomorrow 19 March has been changed in the last 24 hours. It will now take place an hour earlier at 10am and in court number 20.
The GDC views this as a blatant attack on the democratic right to protest with Police
Scotland and Glasgow Sheriff court attempting to disorganise the publicised court
picket planned outside the court from 10.15am. From the last appearance on 4
March it is clear the police and courts are out to provoke and arrest
supporters (see full report by clicking here). For this reason we are calling on all those
planning to attend the trial to head directly to court number 20 at 10am to
witness the trials summary and conclusion.
against these attacks on the right to free speech and protest!
