Henry, a Nottingham Stop the War activist, had been accused of painting the slogans "War for Oil" and "Terrorists Join Here" on the outside of the Armed Forces Recruitment Office at the Victoria Centre, Nottingham.
He had been charged with criminal damage and appeared in Nottingham Magistrates Court to answer the charge.
NSTWC supporters demonstrated outside the court in support of Henry and against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
[Result unknown, on making this report, more news shortly].
It appears Henry was found Guilty. There is some confusion as to the sentence however. It might have been a suspended sentence or a conditional discharge. The confusion is not just me, but the courts! This is getting looked into. Additionally, Henry had been directed to pay £200 compensation for the damage done to the Armed Forces Recruitment Office. I understand he wont be paying saying that: "I don't give money to terrorist organisations" :-)
So, there you have it.
