Defend Free Speech
Socialist Antonis Partasis has been given an unconditional discharge for the "crime" of distributing political literature and campaigning against the bombing of Iraq on the streets of Leigh. The sting is that œ1000 costs were awarded against him. By comparing him to a street seller and thereby claiming Antonis was trading with out a licence, Wigan MBC have attacked the right to free speech. GM Socialist Alliance and the Communist League are appealling for donations on behalf of Antonis. Please send any cheques, payable to "Partasis Defence Campaign", to Communist League, Unit 4, Shude Hill, Manchester M4 4AA. Info: 0161 839 1766.
