HSG protests against the G20

April 3, 2009

In a huge departure from our usual activities, members of Haringey Solidarity Group travelled to central London twice in one week to make a point of some kind.

On Saturday 28th March, members of the group marched with the HSG banner as part of the Direct Action – Militant Workers Block.  The aim of the block was to promote the idea of using direct action in the workplace to bring about real change.

Then on Wednesday 1st April, about half a dozen HSGers headed down to central London early in the morning.  We handed out about 1000 leaflets explaining why we were protesting, in an attempt to present a more balanced picture of our politics to the usual over-simplified stereotypes put forward in the mainstream media.

For more information about events that day, see the Indymedia London website.

If you have been arrested at any of the G20 protests, or if you witnessed someone being arrested (even if you don’t know who they are) please write a detailed account on the incident as soon as possible and forward it to the Legal Defence and Monitoring Group. (All information will be treated in the strictest of confidence.)
