Not guilty!

Over the last few weeks, a number of peace activists have had their charges dropped after, it can only be assumed, that they started asking questions about the illegal torture equipment found at the arms fair in September. As the first group to go to court, things were a little different for us. After police footage showed that there had been some misunderstandings becourt phototween the police and our group, the barrister was able to prove that the arrests shouldn’t have been made and the judge found the defendants not guilty. But this raises other interesting issues. Have a read of some of the articles that have appeared, and ask yourself – who is trying to hide what, and how can we keep trying to bring illegal and immoral activity to light? Start debating!
