Well almost, Lord Justice Moses, hearing the appeal against sentence of 10 people who blockaded trains taking delegates to the DSEI arms fair in London stated that every one of them had given considerable public voluntary service to the community.
The ten protesters, including 2 from Nottingham, had admitted a charge of obstructing an engine or carriage using a railway at a London station in 2005 and were given community service orders and ASBOs. On Wednesday this week the orders were quashed by Lord Justice Moses in the Appeal Court.
Well done to you all for your courageous and principled service to the international community. Perhaps if more people were like you the people of Lebanon could today be gathering their olive harvest without he fear of detonating one of the hundreds of thousands of unexploded cluster bombs.
