Photos From Monday’s Criminal Barrister Strike In Birmingham

Barrister Strike Jan 2014 (3)Criminal Barristers held a half day strike on Monday in protest at cuts to legal aid fees. This was the first strike in their history. In Birmingham, barristers gathered outside the Crown Court, where we joined them in solidarity and in protest at the cuts to legal aid which have already seen legal aid removed from many areas of civil law, and threatened to completely corrupt our criminal justice system until protests forced the Tories to remove the clauses which would have meant that defendents in need of legal aid would have no choice of which solicitor they can use, and the job would be awarded to the solicitor that bid the lowest for it.
