Alleged Intimidation of Bar Staff in Mandela
Although denied by organiser, SCA Officer Eddie Hanna, who admitted "Someone from the crowd may have shouted 'No Surrender' but with 300-odd people there it is impossible to pin-point that person", others in attendance have spoken of intimidation. A member of the bar staff said he had really enjoyed the music and atmosphere until the Deputy Mayor's speech which was highly politicised. At this point he swapped bars with another worker as he felt "uncomfortable and intimidated" in the main Mandela Hall Bar.
