What puzzles me is why you think anyone should bother supplying you
with this information. It sounds to me as if you just want all this
for your own personal use, for a degree or whatever not to in anyway
campaign against civil rights violations. The people who really ended up
suffering from the CJA were not the alternative types but the ordinary
travelling people. This is not so much through prosecutions but by
local authorities being allowed to wriggle out of their responsibility
to provide land for travellers to use. Youre not going to find people
like that at Glastonbury they wouldnt be able to pay the admission

What put paid to that era was not the CJA but the Public order act.
