Tomorrow (30th August) is Dirk’s appeal!
Dirk was convicted earlier this year of Squatting a Residential Building under Section 144 LASPO (Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012). Despite virtually no evidence, the acquittal of his co-defendants and obvious police lies, 3 magistrates ordered him to complete 40 hours of community service and pay £250 costs. (Local rag’s report here) An appeal was sent in straight away and the location has just been announced. It is:
10:00am, Court 2, Hove Trial Centre, The Court House, Lansdowne Rd, Hove BN3 3BN
We are calling on everyone to be there to support Dirk and protest against S144. Fuck the law, squat the lot!
See you tomorrow.
