Strength in numbers… and silence in front of the law

flipflapBrighton Anti-Fascists estimate that at least two thousand people came out
on Sunday 21st April to protest against March for England and those right
wing racists and fascist that they brought to our town. It was a busy day
and chaotic. Our crowd was split by a massive police van blockade of our
widely advertised assembly point. This meant many people did not get a
chance to pick up the legal advice for protesters. Here’s a brief summary:

Stay calm.

If you are arrested, you have a right to consult a solicitor of your
choice. We recommend Kelly’s 01273 674898.

And, remember your rights. You have the right to remain silent. “No
comment” prevents information gathering that can be used against you and
on your friends.

In the aftermath the mobilisation against March for England, there have
been attempts to intimidate protestors on internet sites, in local news
media and by police.

If any of this is happening to you, let us know
(brightonantifascists@riseup.net and 07534189668).
