Omar Ibrahim, a comrade from Glasgow, was charged with violent disorder following his arrest outside Topshop in Oxford Street London on March 26th during the anti-cuts demonstrations.
Since then he has managed to get some very restrictive bail conditions reduced with curfew hours being lessened, so that he can take up work offers.
His trial date has been set for Thursday 22nd September at Kingston Crown Court and is expected to last two days. The police are trying to portray the incident as more violent than it actually was.
Were you near Topshop on March 26th around 1-2pm? Could you act as a witness and describe the mood of the demonstration and the events that took place?
If found guilty he could face a prison sentence of one to five years.

Omar would like to ask any supporters to attend the trial.
