Cardiff activist in court

Two people arrested at the first FITWATCH action will be on trial at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court on the 9th October 2007. All supporters welcome!

This trial will be the first test of whether Forward Intelligence Teams (FIT) teams have a legal right to intimidate, harass, photograph and compile data on people attending political meetings.

One of the defendants, Cardiff anti-FIT activist Val Swain said “It is not acceptable for the police to be compiling data on people attending a political meeting.We are not supposed to be living in a totalitarian society where police can hold data on people just because of their political views. I believe that in acting the way that they do, the police are acting unlawfully. And this trial will attempt to hold them to account.”

The trial starts at 10am on the 9th Oct.
