SOCPA – THE MOVIE World Premiere

For nearly two years, ‘indymedia rikki’ has been closely following the events and battles around the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act Section 132, which criminalised “unauthorised” demonstrations around Parliament.

The hour-long film documentary will be premiered at the Renoir cinema on Sunday June 17th, followed by a panel discussion.

“An important new film about the legislation which was passed in order to get rid of Brian Haw, the lone protestor who has camped outside Parliament for more than 6 years. His ever-increasing display of powerful and artistic banners challenged the politicians who voted for the invasion of Iraq. Last year police swooped and unlawfully removed most of his display, but he has continued his successful battle to remain outside Westminster.

This hour-long documentary shows the enormous creativity and tenacity of Brian and other campaigners appalled at the idea that we have to ask for permission to protest near Parliament.

Featuring an original music soundtrack and contributions from all the main players who have challenged this law, this film is at times frightening, funny, shocking and deeply moving.

It will be followed by a panel discussion with film-maker Indymedia Rikki, Brian Haw, and others.”

The event at the Renoir Cinema is entitled: “Docdays: Brian Haw and the erasure of democracy” and features the SOCPA premiere, another short film, and a panel discussion with Brian Haw, film-maker Rikki, and other invited guests.

Screen one, Renoir cinema, Brunswick Square, London WC1 Noon Sunday 17th June
