English Chap On Trial In Dublin For Mayday '04 Squat

category national | summit mobilisations | event notice author Thursday September 16, 2004 15:43author by Peter Sutherlands Nemisis - global justice movement

This 38 Year Old Has Been Forced To Live In Ireland Awaiting Trial For Trespass Since May '04.

Monday 20th September court appearance.

Need More Info:
- anyone got the time and court number?
- anyone know his name?
- anyone organising a few banners?
- solidarity?

See Indymedia UK for fuller story and background [people 'picketed' Irish embassy in London for his rights on Wed. Sept 15th]:

Even though he used to live in England and just came over here to partake in the kollectively organised participatory Non-Violent Direct Actions around the Mayday '04, having being arrested in the squat (or outside it?) the judge forced him to sign on in a Garda station every week (don't how many times a week or where) which he has had to emigrate to Dublin.

There were two other English people arrested at the same time. A woman who is in a similar position to this chap is not up in court until November, and the third chap is back is England as far as I know (?).

Whoever organised the squat for the London possie last May should perhaps do a bit of publicity for his trial on Monday 20th Sept. ????

Two men arrested during May Day security operations had their cases adjourned today at Dublin District Court due to a shortage of judges.
