GBC day at Freedom bookshop

Date(s) - 02/03/2016
12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Freedom Bookshop


Starting on 2nd March Green and Black Cross volunteers will be on hand to offer legal advice in Freedom bookshop, every Wednesday for the next 6 weeks. If this proves popular we hope to make this an ongoing weekly service.

Volunteers will be available in the bookshop throughout the day, as an informal drop in centre for anyone who would like to discuss GBC’s work or seek legal advice. This will be fully confidential and our knowledgeable volunteers will be able to provide advice for protests, talk through legal cases, offer help going through evidence and preparing defences, as well as facilitate organising ongoing support for defendants.

The Freedom Press bookshop is Britain’s largest anarchist bookshop; stocking thousands of books, newspapers and pamphlets. Find out more on their website:

Hope to see you there!
