SOLIDARITY WITH TONY COX – ADVOCACY IS NOT A CRIME – 21 JULY

We call on all to join the demonstration at Dundee Sheriff Court this thursday 21 July as Scottish Unemployed Workers Network activist Tony Cox appears for sentencing.. The solidarity protest will develop from 10am onwards at the court at 6 West Bell Street, DD1 9AD Dundee.

Tony faces sentencing after being found guilty of “threatening behaviour” - he was arrested while accompanying a woman to her Work Capability Assessment at Maximus, Dundee. This is a clear attack on claimants' rights and solidarity is vital..
