Lindis talking to the gathering before her arrest
Part of the perimeter of the base is skirted by a footpath and it was while walking along this path that Lindis was arrested for breaching bail conditions which prohibit her from coming within five metres of the site. North Yorkshire police officers led the demonstration along the path and then arrested Lindis, holding her down forcibly although she was making no resistance. One officer was heard to remark that after the “nuisance” she causes every Tuesday (when she holds a vigil at the Base) she “had it coming”.
Earlier, Lindis had addressed the gathering and provided background information as people walked around the Base. Music was provided by The Peace Artistes and Rhythms of Resistance Sheffield
