Evading Standards spoof newspaper 1997

A fake version of the Evening Standard newspaper with the headline "General Election Cancelled"

Evading Standards was an anti-capitalist newspaper designed to look like London's right wing Evening Standard. This is the 2nd version of this issue, distributed free to commuters on the Friday before the UK General Election.

The first version of this issue was intended for distribution on the evening before the March For Social Justice on April 12th. 20,000 copies of that version were impounded by the cops at the Piccadilly distribution point.

Three members of Reclaim The Streets were arrested and charged with incitement to cause affray and highway obstruction. As an after thought the next day, they were also charged with breach of copyright on the Evening Standard logo and a Metropolitan Police logo changed to Multinational Police for a spoof advert on the back page.
