PUT THE FIT TEAM ON TRIAL - call for solidarity and resistance

PUT THE FIT TEAM ON TRIAL - Call for solidarity and resistance
9th October, Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court, 9am

In April, two people were arrested outside a DISARM DSEi public meetingfor obstructing a FIT team who were filming people going to the meeting.

Amongst those giving evidence will be one of FIT Watch favourites, CO2558,Steve Discombe.

Come on 9th and show we will no longer allow the police to harass andintimidate us. We will fight back and we will win.

This is a brilliant initiative - thank you. It draws attention to the harrassment and intimidation those who struggle for a different world receive at the hands of the state.
Solidarity & respect

Steve "Steve-o" Discombe has to be one of my favourite cops in the world, aside from the fact that he's a complete wanker.

Solidarity from here too, guys. I remember when the FIT teams started turning up at London football matches in the early 1990s. I found their prescence welcome there, as there were people at football matches who were looking to start trouble - and if you're not looking to start trouble, then it doesn't really matter if the state know which football team you support, does it?

It was, and is, a different matter when FIT teams started turning up at political protests. One of the worst parts of this is that it puts of people who are not regular attenders of demos and protests, and many parts of "the movement" are looking to attract just these sorts of people.

Best of luck with the court case - I'm in Edinburgh myself so won't be able to attend I'm afraid.

i meant to come down to the court for this, but sadly i forgot to stay up, and went to bed and never heard the phone ring - i asked me mate to ring us and wake us up.
Last time i saw them was sat at BtR, and b4 at a few DSEi things i went on-the last action , outside the dorchester, they were pacing up and down every 10 mins at all, filming us all while we penned in, tossers.
TY for taking the initiative and setting this up, solidarity in struggle, people are apathethic enuf as it is, without being scared or nervous of the FIT, and staying away from actions, or even not going into meetings or places they were gonna go, cos of FIT intimidation.
