Support Chelsea Russell Demonstration

February 22, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 9:00 pm

Chelsea Russell, 19, of Liverpool has been targeted by the police and CPS for reposting Snapp Dog lyrics to her Instagram profile, in tribute to local boy Frankie Murphy who tragically died in a motorcycle accident. She was found guilty by magistrates of sharing “grossly offensive” content online.

Chelsea’s appeal hearing will be heard on Friday 16th November (time to be confirmed) at Liverpool Crown Court. To show our support to her, and for her right to free expression, Liberalists UK will be holding a demonstration in front of the court on that day.

*****

UPDATE: We received confirmation that hearing date has been moved to Friday 22nd February 10am.
