Say No to the Dispersal Order meeting. Sunday April 24th from midday, come to the Nottingham Solidarity Cafe at the Sumac Centre, 245 Gladstone Street.

A dispersal order has been placed on Forest Fields. It is aimed at groups of two or more people, or anyone under 16. It means that if you're standing on the street with friends and neighbours the police are allowed to ask you to move along. If you don't then it's a criminal offence. This is another example of police harassing the local community. 

Let's work out together what we can do about this. We'll be meeting at the Sumac Centre on midday this Sunday 24th of April
