LEGAL DEFENCE FUND | ISABELLA ACEVEDO

Please contribute and share!

This website was set-up collectively to extend our solidarity, warmth and financial support to Mark Haper’s latest unnecessary political casualty – his very own employee Ms Isabella Acevedo and her family.

We will campaign to ensure that all legal avenues are open and afforded to them. Overnight they have lost their income, been criminalized and have also been used in a carefully stage-managed nationwide political campaign.

DEFEND| THE RIGHT TO PROTEST

Having won our appeal - proving that Trenton Oldfield is conducive to the Great British Public Good, we are finally resuming our work. Feels wonderful to put our time and energy to this! The Home Office's attempt to appeal was rejected and we understand they will try once more. Whilst we wait, we are cracking on with all things This Is Not A Gateway and Myrdle Court Press.

More info on Trenton's deportation can be found here

Petition to stop the deportation / Judges Comments

"The concept of 'protestor-as-criminal' is filtering down from action justified through rhetoric into public consciousness. This is worrying and a curtailing of the rights of people living in a democracy where the freedom to voice dissent is and always will be vitally needed."

5TH & FINAL TINAG | FESTIVAL

"It is needed more than ever. I can't wait for the next one!"

The 5th and final Festival will be held in London this coming November.
 
SAVE THE DATE: 01-02 NOVEMBER 2014
What did people think of the last Festival?
 
Our plan from the beginning was always to only do 5 festivals - organisations tend to corrupt and/or become parodies of themselves around this time - we thought we should vacate our seat at this table for sharp new arrivals.

  PURCHASE |'The Queen vs Trenton Oldfield'

If you would like to support us/our work, please consider purchasing a copy of Trenton's prison diary. Reviewers have suggested it makes for an interesting read.

Purchase  (£14.99 including post) / About / Contents  

"In 2012, Trenton Oldfield rose to fame for interrupting the Oxford-Cambridge boat race in a public protest against elitism and inequality. After political intervention, Oldfield was sentenced to six months in prison, which this book – published to help pay for legal costs – describes with passion, insight and a rare openness. In part systemic critique, in part a warm description of his fellow prisoners, this is a hugely thought-provoking (and surprisingly funny) piece of writing. A must-read for those who put him there."  Tom Jeffreys, Wild Cultures

ORDER YOUR COPY! |CRITICAL CITIES VOL 3

A new run of the recent volume of Critical Cities has just been printed! As inequality increases across the globe, could there be a more urgent moment for critical insight into the lives and politics of 21st century cities?

REVIEWS ABOUT BUY YOUR COPY (£20.99 including shipping)

"Critical Cities volume 3 is a compilation of impressive proportion. Working from the starting point of “city as inequality,” over 40 contributors from all around the globe offer essays and photo-essays, articles, criticism, reflections, and interviews... Coming from a place both within and well beyond the confines of academia, in the end, Critical Cities volume 3 is yet another excellent contribution to the process of imagining our post-capitalist urban futures."  John Finn (Book Review Editor, Human Geography: A New Radical Journal)
