Harriet Johnson secures acquittal for anti-fascist protester

09.10.17 | |

Harriet Johnson has secured the acquittal of an anti-fascist protester charged with directing violent clashes in Liverpool in February 2016.  Her client was alleged to have coordinated the actions of hundreds of anti-fascist protesters who turned out in response to a march by far-right groups, including North West Infidels and the now-banned National Action.  An investigation into the violence seized some 9,200 hours of video footage recorded on the day, parts of which the Crown claimed showed Harriet’s client inciting or encouraging violence towards the far-right protesters.  After a two-week trial at Liverpool Crown Court, Harriet’s client was unanimously acquitted by the jury.


Harriet Johnson was instructed by Robert Lizar Solicitors. For enquiries about instructing Harriet in similar matters, please contact her clerks here
