Here is a report of the original incident by 'Don B.':
The Arresting of Gwyn Gwyntopher – 13/09/2007
The following information regarding the arrest of a 66 year old pacifist, Gwyn Gwyntopher, was pointed out in a Disarm DSEI group email. The arrest occurred on the 13/09/2007. She was standing at the Custom House Docklands Light Railway (DLR) Station and was wearing a t-shirt that read ‘Remember the Victims of the Arms Trade’. Transport police arrested, hand cuffed and dragged her along the ground to the elevator. Her husband, Chris Gwyntopher, was separated from her, after they both indicated that she was in considerable pain and appealed to have the hand cuffs removed. The appeals were declined.
Gwyn was then charged with trespassing on the DLR Station and refusing to leave the area. She was offered bail, but on the condition that she would not travel on the DLR until her court appearance. When she refused this condition, Gwyn was transferred to Forest Gate Police Station and held overnight to appear before Stratford Magistrates on 14/9/07. I urge everyone to please support her at Stratford Magistrates' Court on 04/10/2007 for the pre-trial review and 05/11/2007 for the trial.
