Latest reports from the trial
Yesterday three 'Wombles' - whose trial began on Monday - had their charges dismissed. The remaining four will be presenting their defence today. Read report. The week-long 'show trial' of seven Wombles activists, who were attacked and arrested on Halloween last year, was part of a campaign of intimidation by the MET police.
The TACT website gives more background on the case: "The Halloween seven trial is an attempt to crush a group of people who tried to stand up for themselves in self-defence against the bullies in blue. The Wombles should not have to fight this trial alone - when the State tries to criminalise dissent then WE ARE ALL WOMBLES!" Read this personal report from Monday.
