MORE BENEFIT CUTS

Party-pooping plod tried to put the squeeze on two benefit gigs for political campaigns over the weekend. On Saturday (23rd) coppers quizzed management at Brixton’s ‘Jamm’ over a FITwatch fundraiser they labelled an ‘illegal rave’.

Then on Sunday (24th), they paid a visit to ‘The Grosvenor’ in Stockwell to grill management about a scheduled gig for London Student Solidarity Campaign – a group organised by those arrested in last year’s student demos. While there they seized promotional materials for the event, presumably not to distribute in a helpful fly-posting campaign.
