Nicholas Francis, Tyrone Laidley, Renardo Farrell, Wayne Collins, Jermaine Lewis and Amirul Rehman
These 6 rebels have been locked up by the British state in revenge for the ambush laid for police by a group of roughly 40 rioters in Ashton, Birmingham, during last August’s uprising. The group of rioters, the regime prosecution alleged, had set fire to a pub to draw police to the scene who were then shot at with various firearms, forcing police, including the police helicopter, to flee.
Wigged-up bastard Judge William Davis, summing up after discharging his duties as jailer of enemies of the rich and powerful, declared – “The purpose, the common purpose, was to behave in such a way that the police would come to the scene and then to attack the police.”
Francis, Laidley, Farrell, Collins and Lewis – all young men in their early 20s – were given sentences ranging from 18 years (for Renardo Farrell) to 30 years (for Nicholas Francis), on charges of riot, arson and possession of firearms “with intent to endanger life.” 17-year old Amirul Rehman was sentenced to 12 years.
The 6 young men join thousands of others who rose up in August 2011 that are now held hostage by the British state’s prison system. Strength to those who lift their hands against the oppressors – and we wish all the fighters a quick break to the streets with dignity!!
NO JUSTICE NO PEACE – FUCK THE POLICE!
