"[In 2009] Yahia was one of tens of thousands of people who joined demonstrations in London against the Israeli bombing of Gaza. At one of those demonstrations Yahia and many others were 'kettled'--surrounded by a police cordon and slowly let out in return for giving their names and addresses and for being filmed. That was the last Yahia knew of it until the following April, when the family home was raided by 20 to 30 police at 5am. The front door was forced open...they refused to let him put on any clothes, even though they'd opened the windows, letting in the cold...Yahia was later charged with violent disorder...He says that during the demonstration he took a chair from a nearby Starbucks to sit on, but police alleged that the cafe was trashed and the furniture used as weapons...Yahia is now serving a one-year prison term."
