Solidarity from Salford

FREE NORMAN SCARTH was a campaign setup via social networking to…………FREE NORMAN SCARTH!
People were encouraged to use a picture of Norman Scarth as their profile picture on Facebook, and there were several groups and events setup whilst he was in prison.
I attended the protest outside H.M.P Leeds on 13th August 2011, with some friends and made a video from that day also which is on this same channel πŸ˜‰
For his hearing at the Royal Courts in London on 25th August I was unable to show solidarity in London and again via social networking (I setup an event called FREE NORMAN SCARTH WEEK 19th – 26th August. Which was pulled by Facebook ironically) we suggested that those who couldn’t make the journey to London? Should stage a protest at their local magistrates courts and upload any pics and vids to Facebook, which we did after our protest outside Salford magistrates Courts. I also have another video on this channel from that day too πŸ˜‰
We didn’t get the verdict we wanted on 25th August so an appeal hearing was arranged for 9th September 2011. Again I was unable to show solidarity in London, and the optomist in me said he would be released this time! So I thought, where better to be than in Leeds to welcome Norman Scarth back into freedom!
And that’s exactly what we did! πŸ™‚ πŸ˜€
Norman Scarth is an 85 year old WWII Veteran who was serving a 6 month sentence in H.M.P Leeds for making an audio recording in court.
Norman served on H.M.S Matchless on the arctic convoys (regarded as some of the most dangerous missions of WWII) and for that reason his story was picked up by Russia Today (nice work RT as usual) The same cannot be said for our mainstream media, who failed to pickup this story in either the press or Television, apart from Look North who showed a 2 minute clip on the day.
Norman Scarth is a living legend and in his own words:-
” I fought the Nazis 67 years ago. And I’m still fighting the Nazis today!!”
Norman Scarth has various videos on YouTube and also has his own blog which I am sure will be getting updated very soon and should be well worth a read and should also have a fair few more subscribers after what has gone on!
Normans story is an amazing one, but it is I am afraid only the tip of the iceberg! But this iceberg is going to sink the “justice system” around the World!
All that remains for me to say is….it was a pleasure to be involved in the FREE NORMAN SCARTH Campaign. It was an honour to be among the small group of people outside Armley Jail when Norman was released.
But the icing on the cake was being one of only 5 people who celebrated Normans release with him with a slapup meal, of which I am pleased, proud and priveledged to have been there.
Norman Scarth,,,,,,,,,,,,,we love you!

    Whose post is this?

  2. Thanks. It gave the impression that it might have been Chris, although it obviously didn’t sound like the way Chris writes.
