Four Democracy Villagers were apparently jailed yesterday (Saturday 3 July) by District Judge Nicholas Evans at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court, London.

Simon was handed a 20-day sentence for ‘contempt of court’ - displaying a peace banner in the courtroom - to be served at HMP Wandsworth in south London, whilst three others were each given 7-day sentences in lieu of fines for highway obstruction during Friday's sit-down protests outside Parliament and Downing Street. Anita and at least one other woman are believed to be serving their time at HMP Holloway in north London. The whereabouts of the fourth person are unclear at present.

Other people arrested during Friday’s peaceful anti-war protests were offered cautions or accepted fines.
