Support the Bomber Harris protesters

'The strain of facing the protest could leave the Queen Mum feeling ill for days.' So worried the Sun after demonstrators disrupted the unveiling of a statue of Sir Arthur 'Bomber' Harris, the butcher of Dresden, in the Strand on Sunday 31 May. Harris, chief of Bomber Command, gave German civilians rather more than a few days of feeling ill. His carpet-bombing firestorm tactics killed more than 100 000 in Dresden alone.

Eight supporters of the Revolutionary Communist Party were among the 10 people arrested during the protest. They have been charged with causing criminal damage and with public order offences. A defence group has been set up for those arrested, and one of its priorities is to raise money to cover legal costs.
