Acknowledging alternatives is a human right: a UK UNcut activist speaks after her trial in Brighton

Posted on

Can I recommend this article by Tess Riley of UK Uncut and one of the found not guilty of causing criminal damage in Brighton at the close of her trial last week?

She offers an erudite explanation of why those who protested acted as they did, concluding

Acquitted or otherwise, we know that we are not the criminals in this situation. Acknowledging alternatives to devastating spending cuts is a basic human right. The failure to do so is the real crime taking place around here.

I agree with her.
