Census refuser court update: CPS drops some cases

NoCONcensus | 11.05.2012 08:03 | 2011 Census Resistance | Anti-militarism | Repression | Birmingham | Liverpool | Oxford

An update on some of the court cases involving those who refused to complete the 2011 Census on anti-war and anti-surveillance grounds amongst others. Many objections were directly related to arms manufacturer Lockheed Martin's contract to process census data. The CPS has started dropping cases. This is the latest information we have. Please get in touch if you have more up-to-date info on any of these cases (or others).
