Great Success At Ian Tomlinson Benefit Day.




Saturday’s event saw an eclectic bunch gathering at the King Edward VII Music Venue on Aylsham Road coming together to raise money for the family of Ian Tomlinson.

At present we have managed to raise £1000 for the campaign.

We’d like to thank the Tomlinsons for coming along to the benefit and Richard in particular for speaking.

Other speakers we’d like to thank are Paul Lewis from The Guardian, Estelle Du Boulay from the Newham Monitoring Project who is representing the Tomlinson Campaign, Ian Gibson, Ian Bone, Bella from the Class War Federation, and Ken Connor from the Red Flags for all his hard work on the day. Also Maxine Narburgh from Bright Green, The Somewhere Else Tea Tent folks-you are great, and the King Edward VII for their support and giving us £100 to the campaign, and Mell Harrison for the lone of the marquee-sorry some idiot wrote graffiti on it. Not forgetting those individuals and a couple of union branches that have sponsored this event. Hope we haven’t missed anyone!

Thanks to all the bands, poets and other artists who attended, and above all every person who came along and helped us raise a significant amount of cash for the Ian Tomlinson Campaign.

Only one question remains to be asked…exactly where were the Trade Unions?

Another report from the day can be read here.
