Statement of Solidarity with Simon Moore

The following statement has now been endorsed through consensus by Occupy London:

On Monday 18th June a two year ASBO was imposed on Simon Moore, our friend and fellow protestor at Leyton Marsh.

Like us, Simon believed that what was happening on Leyton Marsh was wrong and needed to be resisted peacefully.
Like us, Simon did not want to see a beautiful habitat and recreational space enclosed, contaminated and destroyed for a wasteful temporary facility for the Olympics.
Like us, Simon was prepared to show his opposition to this destructive land grab.
Like us, he was intimidated with the full force of the law and criminalised.
Like Simon, we do not wish to stop speaking the truth about legitimate issues around the Olympics such as environmental destruction and suspension of our human rights.
Like Simon, we will not stop peacefully protesting.
Like Simon, we will not stop speaking out about what is right.
Like Simon, we refuse to fear doing what is right and just in the face of repression.
We stand together against this injustice and speak as one. Simon is one of us and we are all Simon Moore!

    There is something sickening about the way that the Olympic authorities can make up new laws to oppress ordinary people, while being except from existing laws themselves, when it comes to enclosing public spaces, destroying listed structures and turning homes into military bases.

    Please add my name to the campaign. The London Olympic committee are in truth physical representations of the worst capitalist nightmare scenario. Grab all the money they can for themselves and their friends, destroy large areas of London and the surrounding environment, ruin the lives of countless people and anyone who opposes them can get put in prison for simply existing. Please add my name to the open letter, Sherrl Yanowitz

  18. Simon is a good friend, he’s also an exceptional activist who is willing to walk his talk. This ASBO is an absurd and unnecessary transgression of anything that could conceivably be described as due process. Please add my name, Liz Beech

    We must all keep vigilant that the marshes ARE returned to exactly the state they started in. The criminals must not be allowed to get away with this land grab.

    Martin Houston.

  51. Iain Bruce says:

    The Olympics have become a means for the further diminution of citizens’ rights. Protest is criminalised. It’s not simply the Marshes that need to be restored.
