Justice for Alfie Meadows

imageAlfie Meadows sustained a brain injury having been struck on the head with a baton by a Metropolitan Police officer at a protest about tuition fees on 9 December 2010. That assault is the subject of an investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission, (IPCC).  The Metropolitan Police charged Alfie with violent disorder, a charge he strongly denies the charge and to which he will plead not guilty.

There are 7 weeks until Alfie’s trial. Join the call for the charges to be dropped NOW. Alfie nearly died after being struck with a police baton during the 2010 anti-fees protest. He should not be facing prison.
