Cambridge Two

Issue No. 1682

OVER 600 people attended a lively demonstration last Saturday in Cambridge to protest against the imprisonment of the Cambridge Two, Ruth Wyner and John Brock. A judge had two days earlier refused them leave to appeal against their conviction. That decision will now go to a higher court. The two have been sentenced to five and four years after having been falsely accused of allowing drugs to be dealt in the homeless day centre they ran. Delegations on the march included workers from the local council, Southwark NATFHE, Ipswich TGWU and local students. Protesters chanted, 'British justice, no justice-free the Cambridge Two.' Campaigners now plan to take their protests to London and hand in a petition to the Home Office.
