Activists from SAC(Safer communities for Activists) and elsewhere took part and silently held boards and banners, calling for Re-Tool to Peace, to the thousand or so BAe staff and support services at Shift Change/lunch time on Monday (11.30am to 2pm).
The protest was small and mainly visual not vocal, but comments were exchanged and there was dialogue with the BAe Chief of Security at the site who appeared to be keeping a record of the number of times that people had protested there. Apparently, monday was only the 5th time in 8 years that this weapons components/systems manufacturer had been visited, despite it being the crucial lynchpin site for the BAe Hawk Jet to India and Indonesia disgrace of recent times.
Perhaps next time, the Security Chief will be counting more than 4 protestors at the gates? The site is huge, just literally round the corner from the Brough train station,on Saltgrounds Road, is 6 miles from Hull and served well by an A - road (whose number I cant remember) and, just for good measure, they have an old style "Buccaneer" Jet on display at the adjoining BAe owned airstrip and training site. The SAC(and friends) protests/visits will continue, approxiamately, every month.
