Karl Debbaut - Next Hearing 26 January
ON 19 January, International Socialist Resistance (ISR) coordinator Karl Debbaut appeared in court for the sixth time. He is charged with assaulting a police officer in the execution of his duty last March during a protest by school students in Lewisham, south London against the war in Iraq.
Karl totally denies the charge.
After hours of evidence, the case was adjourned for a week until 26 January for summing up and the court's decision.
ISR has called another lobby on Monday 26 January at 9am at Belmarsh magistrates court, Belmarsh Rd, London SE28. Join the lobby to defend Karl and defend school students' right to protest.
