News has come in that Sean Kirtley, one of the defendants in the recent SOCPA/ Sequani trial has been sentenced to 4 and a half years in jail for his part in "organising demonstrations".
Please put this into context with sentences handed down for offences such as accessing child pornography, sexual assaults and other violent crimes which rarely see a sentence of over 3 years and very often result in suspended sentences.
Please contact Sean's support network to offer your messages of solidarity.
Sean Kirtley (WC6977), HMP Birmingham Prison, Winson Green Road, Birmingham B18 4AS
