Tamil Solidarity took part in a protest outside the Irish Embassy in London, in support of JobstownNotGuilty.
This protest was organised by Haldane Society of Socialist Lawyers, an organisation affiliated to Tamil Solidarity Campaign.
The Tamil Solidarity campaign gives full support to the Jobstown protesters in Ireland. We defend the right to protest.
In April 2017, a court case will begin where protesters are charged with the crime of false imprisonment after they took part in a peaceful protest which included the blocking of a politician’s car with a sit-down protest.
Tamil Solidarity demands that the Irish government:
- Drop all charges against the protesters
- Revoke the conviction made to the 17 year old protester
- Allow the right to protest
