Defend the right to picket: protest at Hastings Magistrates Court, 9:30, 29 June

Hastings and District TUC has called a protest at Hastings Magistrates Court (Bohemia Road, Hastings TN34 1ND) for 9:30 on 29 June, when three GMB officials arrested on a Wealden council refuse workers’ picket line will appear in court.

The organisers write:

“Three GMB officials were arrested on the picket line at Amberstone Depot in Hailsham. They were taken away in handcuffs.

“These were clearly stage managed arrests after a political decision by East Sussex police to back the outsourced employer, Biffa, who are paying poverty wages to refuse collectors.

“The GMB officials will appear at Hastings Magistrates Court to face charges. Join the protest at Hastings Magistrates Court on 29 June 29 at 9.30am. Bring your banners and support the GMB 3.”
