Update on Lakenheath 8 trial

After more messing around by the prosecution, the trial of the
Lakenheath 8 has been adjourned until the 6th of March. The trial
is the result of an action last October, when the activists entered USAF Lakenheath nuclear base and chained themselves to the gates of a munitions storage area to stop the movement of cluster bombs.

On the most recent trial date (the 20th of February) the defendants were
presented with more new evidence, so they need more time to prepare
their case.

The next court date is expected to include the pleas and
case management, and will be at 11:30 on Tuesday the 6th of March at
Bury St Edmunds magistrates court. Supporters would be very welcome to

A classic case of the state messing around to use up the time of protestors.
