Report on Holloway NYE Protest

UPDATE: Excellent video of the protest by Fil Kaler (@filkaler on Twitter, website) here.

There’s a good report of the protest we helped to organise at Holloway here:

‘up to 100 people took part in tonight’s new year’s eve solidarity noise protest at holloway women’s prison and young offenders’ unit. their aim was to highlight the recent spate of draconian sentencing on protesters and others, and to contrast the injustice that police and bankers are allowed to go free despite committing much greater crimes.’

There’s a link to other NYE prison protests that took place around the UK and the world here.

The prison population is now around 88,000 people, and nearing capacity, with many more expected following riot sentencing.
