Sri Lankan left calls for immediate release
We vehemently protest against the imprisonment of Joe Higgins MP and councillor Clare Daly for their "crime" of defending the poor in their fight against the most unjust Bin Tax. We call for their immediate release and a review of the imposition of the Bin Tax.
