Could you be a Witness to an incident or arrest or what was
happening in general?
Trials are now underway for some very serious offences, such as violent
disorder, which are being given sentences of up to 18 months in prison.
- Often it is the defendant's word against the
police, who do not always have very good evidence. If you were at the
following places and could give a witness statement please get in touch
with the defendants. It is useful if you can just make a statement
about the atmosphere and behaviour of the police and the protesters,
even if you did not witness the incidents themselves. You could save
someone from a longer prison sentence than they would be given, no
prison sentence at all or even being found guilty.

opposite Top Shop on Oxford Street between 2pm and 3pm
Hey yeah I just need ppl to turn up to my trial. 22nd and 23rd
If you can share the indymedia link around:
That would be
fantastic. If you can find me anyone who saw what happened even more
amazing, but basically to have people at my trial is what I want.

- December 9th
2010. Parliament Square/Broad Sanctuary between about 2pm and 3.30pm
- If you were in parliament square or broad
sanctuary (in front of westminster abbey) during this time
please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
will put you in touch with Jonathan.
The police have a very weak case against Jon, but he could face a
prison term. Evidence from anyone else in the square at the time could
be valuable in tipping the jury's decision in Jonathan's favour. Around
this time Jon helped to defend Jodi from being arrested in his
wheelchair and a policeman fell from his horse.
