We think it is really important for defendants to meet and offer mutual support. Defendants meetings facilitate a discussion of the specific details of the case(s) with solicitors and ourselves and defendants campaigns may be started following these meetings.
Contacting us early after arrest means we can inform you if we organise a defendants’ meeting. Please encourage any other arrestees you know to get in touch too.
There will usually be solicitors present, and a representative from either GBC or the Legal Defence and Monitoring Group.
We do NOT campaign on defendants behalf. However, we offer support to defendants to organise their own campaigns if they wish.
