Success! We Pushed the State Back
You answered our call!
Dozens of emails and phone calls were made in the days before Meshach’s May 11th trial appearance.In the hours before Meshach’s trial, ANWO, Meshach’s family and community supporters gathered outside of Willesden Magistrate’s Court in London’s Borough of Brent to protest against his criminal charge. Some of our supporters even went into the courtroom.
The Court decided to postpone the case pending review of Meshach’s medical reports. We know that this is due to your phone calls, emails, press coverage and participation in the demo.
As an international community, we helped lift Kushinda and Meshach out of isolation, preventing the State from condemning a mentally disabled African man to jail.
