Plus more to be confirmed…

ITS NOT JUST A CLUB NIGHT SO WHAT IS IT ALL ABOUT?

Since the cuts were announced last October students, Ukuncut groups, pensioners, unions and our youth have taken to the streets in protest. The response has been kettling, police violence, mass arrests, house raids, disproportionate sentencing and attacks from the mass media. Many defendants have already been given harsh sentences, including imprisonment, and others are awaiting trial. One group of protesters is facing trial in November for taking part in a sit-in in Fortnum and Masons last march, who are involved in a £10 million a year tax avoidance scam.

RESISTANCE RIDDIMZ is about showing love and solidarity to the Fortnum 145, the student protesters and all those targeted for standing up to injustice and raising some funds to cover travel fees to court for defendants.
One struggle, One people.

Proceeds go to support defendants through Fortnum145, Defend the Right to Protest Campaign and LDMG

Solidarity Price: £8
£3 concessions,
Free for defendants

Venue location:
