Ryan Roberts – 14 year prison sentence

Ryan Roberts was sentenced on the 17th December 2021 at Bristol Crown Court to a total of 14 years in prison. He was convicted of riot and four counts of arson. Three of the sentences run consecutively and only one concurrently, hence the brutal sentence of 14 years. As it is over seven years, it means he has to do two thirds of the sentence. He will do just under a decade in prison.

The demonstration took place in March 2021 against the Police, Courts and Sentencing Bill. It was an outpouring of rage against the violence of the police. The crowd fought back after police officers attacked the crowd with batons and riot shields. Pepper spray was used indiscriminately, people were charged at with horses and hit over the head with batons and shields . The protesters fought back, seizing police riot shields, helmets and batons to defend themselves. By the end of the evening several police vehicles had been set on fire.

A growing number of people have been arrested and sentenced to prison, with more trials taking place throughout 2022.

The time is NOW for solidarity.

Urgent Demonstration for Ryan Roberts

Ryan Roberts is due to be sentenced for riot & arson after the kill the bill protests in Bristol.

Let’s show our solidarity with him and all KTB defendants and prisoners at Bristol Crown Court, Friday 17th December.

2pm – Pack the court to show Ryan he has our support and is not alone. Bring banners, friends, rage and noise!

Ryan is being sentenced tomorrow for his part in fighting back against police attacks at the Kill The Bill protest on 21st March in Bristol.

Expect more cheerleading for brutal cops and punitive, vengeful sentencing as an example to the rest of us, from Judge Patrick, in his enthusiasm for meting out maximum punishment and being a tool of the state.

We need to stand solid together in the face of escalating attacks and repression and show that our movements will not be broken or be defeated. Solidarity is our best defence.

Everyone in the court and out on the streets. ACAB. FTP.
