Celebration as judge acquits anti-nuclear campaigners | Ekklesia - 0 views

  •  
    Four anti-nuclear activists who took part in a mass protest at the Aldermaston nuclear base have been acquitted by a district judge at Reading Magistrates' Court.

    The four individuals were accused of obstructing the highway on 27th October 2008, but the judge, Peter Crabtree, ruled that the prosecution had failed to prove that they were even on the highway, let alone obstructing it. The defendants successfully argued that the blockade took place on Ministry of Defence land and did not significantly affect the public traffic flow.

    However, the judge did not accept the defendants' argument that the Atomic Weapons Establishment was itself engaged in unlawful activity.
