On Monday 16 February supporters of north and south London RCG were among those protesting outside the Ministry of Justice in support of long term prisoner Kevan Thakrar, alongside campaigners from Brighton Anarchist Black Cross, Payday Men’s Network and JENGbA (Joint Enterprise Not Guilty by Association).

The demonstration sought to highlight the continued mistreatment suffered by Kevan since 2010, when he was acquitted of the attempted murder of three prison officers at HMP Frankland. Despite the not guilty verdict, Kevan has remained isolated and brutalised within the ‘Close Supervision Centre’ (CSC) system.
