Christian anti-war campaigners to go on trial
Comment Email Print
 Four Christian anti-war protesters face a two-day trial at Bow Street Magistrates Court in central London starting next Monday, following a protest at the Ministry of Defence (MoD) in Whitehall on Holy Innocent's Day - December 28 2004 - against the continuing war and occupation of Iraq. The four; Liz Yates, Scott Albrecht, Catholic priest Fr Martin Newell and Chris Cole, dug graves in the lawn of the MoD and sprayed the words 'Remember the Innocent' in protest at the war in Iraq. Spokesperson Chris Cole said: "2,000 years ago the innocent were massacred in an attempt to keep the powerful secure. Today, the powerful continue to massacre the innocent with the same motives. There can be no innocent bystanders - we must do what we can to defend the poor and vulnerable." Supporters and friends of the four defendants are holding a vigil of support before the trial from 9am-10am outside Bow Street Magistrates Court in central London.
