The real world
OK, at a branch meeting last night, we had a speaker from the Sam Hallam campaign.
I'd seen posters about this campaign round the Hoxton area, butthis was teh first time I'd heard about the case in detail.
I'm always a touch wary of these campaigns, because I wasn't there and it's hard to know. The speaker addressed this point clearly - they're not asking us to campaign because we think he's innocent, but that there might be a case worth the court of appeal hearing.
From what was said, the case does sound shonky, and I do think the appeal should be considered. There, that's my invovlement, go read their site for more.
