Samuel March secures acquittal of pro-Palestine protestor charged with possessing item with intent to destroy/damage property

Following a contested trial, Samuel March’s client was acquitted of possessing eight bottles of red paint, water balloons and a funnel with intent to destroy/damage property. 

Sam was instructed by MTC Solicitors. 

On the day in question there were a number of protests in London, one of which took place outside of the London HQ of Israel's largest arms firm, a building which has been the subject of red paint attacks on a number of occasions. 

The Defendant explained that when other protestors had asked him to bring paint, he had thought it was for protestors to throw on themselves. He was arrested near a different protest, across the river from the building in question, walking away from the protests, having changed his mind about being involved at all. 

Sam accepts instructions in all areas of protest law, with a particular interest in defending protestors fighting for social, environmental and/or animal justice.
