Tonight: Newham Monitoring Project Holds Tottenham Legal Training Session

This evening, Newham Monitoring Project has organised a training session in Tottenham from 7-9pm at North London Community House, Moorefield Road, London N17 6P (nearest station: Tottenham Hale).

The training will be facilitated by experienced lawyers and aims to cover core legal rights in relation to:

  • Stop & Search under the various and most relevant powers
  • Warrants for arrest
  • House raids and seizure of property
  • Arrest & Detention
  • Bail - what is is and how it works
  • Going to court, processes & appeals
The session will also touch on police complaints and accountability. It is aimed both at people who are trusted and well-positioned within the local community in Tottenham, such as youth and community workers, as well as those interested in volunteering to disseminate information about a planned Tottenham Defence Campaign. The intention is to ensure that participants are more aware of key legal issues so they can provide guidance if approached and ultimately advise people when and how to seek professional legal representation.

Newham Monitoring Project has also produced an A6-sized Stop & Search Rights Card for groups and individuals working in Tottenham - see here
