2nd of february activists: bail conditions and after thoughts
On the 2nd of February 5 anti nuclear activists were arrested at Faslane naval base during a lock-on action. The 5 activists are now on bail with conditions: all 5 are,for example, not to go within 100 meters of the base, which means they cannot for example even go to the nearby Garelochhead shop for a pack of butter.
“My actions speak louder than my words” – one activist said.
“This being my first arrest and witnessing the dehumanising methods of the system first hand, both during the action and in custody. What i experienced in custody really affected me and it has made me even more determined to stand up and resist the oppression no matter what the consequences”, says another activist.
As a consequence day to day life on the camp has been slightly disrupted, such as not being able to attend the weekly vigil for peace held at the north gate of faslane naval base every wednesday between the hours of 4-5 pm. The vigil is an on going tradition for several years, any support will be greatly welcomed as numbers will be down to an all time low for the next couple of months due to the bail conditions and the fact that they face serious jail time even for going to a vigil for peace or to buy that pack of butter.
