The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

Veteran British anti nuclear campaigners gaoled

The National 14th July 2017, PROTESTING pensioners Brian Quail and Angela Zelter are languishing in jail
after refusing to accept a court order banning them from campaigning
outside a nuclear arms base.

Quail, a 79-year-old retired Latin teacher is
being kept in HMP Low Moss, while 66-year-old Zelter has been remanded in
Corton Vale. The two were arrested by police after taking part in a
blockade of the nuclear warhead store at Coulport on Loch Long as part of
the Trident Ploughshares campaign.

The veteran campaigners, and three
others who had taken part in the blockade, were offered bail at Dumbarton
Justice of the Peace Court on Wednesday, but only if they agreed to not go
“within 100m of the perimeter fence or shoreline of HMS Naval Base Clyde,
Faslane”.http://www.thenational.scot/news/15412112.Pensioners_face_THREE_WEEKS_of_jail_time_for_peacefully_protesting_nuclear_weapons/
