Freedom Network grew out of the campaign against the Criminal Justice
Act, 2003. They co-ordinated actions across the U.K. in protest
against the Act, which criminalized peaceful protest & gatherings.
Dragon worked with The Freedom Network
on various projects and campaigns, helping to highlight the importance
of the new law to the pagan community.
This photograph was taken on the day
the Criminal Justice Bill became an Act. That morning hundreds of
protesters invaded the site of the M11 link road. The Act became
law at noon, so our action was legal in the morning & illegal
in the afternoon.
I love this guys banner. For me it sums
up on of the key principles of the D.I.Y. culture: The only way
we will find justice in this society is to make it happen ourselves.
If you think D.I.Y. culture has something to do with putting up
shelves at the weekend, see George McKays review of Gathering
Force, which gives a fair overview.
