CPS Drop 109 Fortnum & Mason protest cases


Today the CPS have announced that they will be dropping 109 cases of the 145 arrested at Fortnum & Masons during anti-cuts demonstrations on March 26th. There remains 30 people who the CPS still plan on prosecuting, 13 of which have a trial set for November. But questions remain as to why the decision was taken to arrest 145 people staging a sit-down protest against tax dodgers and why they contin…

Charges of aggravated trespass against 109 people accused of storming Fortnum and Mason have been dropped. A sit-in organised by campaign group UK Uncut was held at the luxury food store on Piccadilly, central London, in March in protest over alleged tax avoidance by the business's part-owners.

in bed with the resistance: So you think you're a radical?

I've always quite liked those essays and pamphlets that have from time to time been put out to confront politically active people with their own behaviour patterns. They tend to have a provocative edge and slightly supercilious note that I will attempt to emulate in this post. Because this one is for people who think of themselves as radicals. This is a post about how radicalism might not be radic…

Freedom Press: Against the cuts, against the state

The red and black flags flying at the big anti-cuts demo on March 26th have prompted that question again. Why are anarchists – who are against the state – taking to the streets against cuts in public spending and state provision? I’ve been hearing this from potentially sympathetic folk, so it’s a question worth answering again.

Tories, New Labourites and others moot the ‘freedom’ of t…

Red Pepper: The 2011 Budget and its global context

Hugo Radice picks apart Osborne's budget, and predicts difficult times ahead for the UK economy.

The massive turnout on March 26 in London provided a vital public repudiation of the ConDems' austerity programme.  But although opinion polls show that a large majority of the public say that the cuts in public spending are unfair and too fast, more than half still think they are necessary.  As oppo…

Infantile Disorder: The Black Bloc and 'Propaganda by Deed'

The intra-anarchist debate over the black bloc in the wake of the March 26th London demonstrations is the latest stage in a debate that has characterised anarchism - and indeed the radical left in general - since the mid 1800s. One hundred and fifty years on, the controvery is still raging. Where this disagreement has been comradely, it has shown a great strength of anarchism - the belief that a w…

Fortnum145 blog: We’re launching our campaign!

Hi! And thanks for visiting fortnum145.org!

Fortnum 145 is a campaign by friends and family to support the 145 people who were arrested and charged following the occupation of Fortnum and Mason on 26 March this year.

So far, we’ve been part shocked, part amused, by the awful media coverage of the events of that day. Media spin about violence and attacks has been undermined by footage actually ta…
