Seven Palestine solidarity protesters from London and Brighton were
arrested on 11th November 2004 after they took part in a non-violent
blockade outside the UK base of an Israeli agricultural export company
Agrexco (UK) Ltd, Swallowfield Way, Hayes, Middlesex.
Agrexco is Israel’s largest importer of agricultural produce into the
European Union, and it is 50% Israeli state owned. It imports produce from
illegal Israeli settlements in the West Bank.
The protestors will face trial at Uxbridge Magistrates Court, between the
23rd-31st January 2006. They are each charged with two offences
under the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994. Section 68:
(Aggravated Trespass) and Section 69: (Failure To Leave Land). The defence
team will be advised by Palestinian QC Michel Abdel Massih of Tooks
The protesters will argue as a defence that they were acting to prevent
crimes against international law, that are also offences in the UK under
the International Criminal Court Act. The defendants will argue that these
offences are being supported by Agrexco (UK) .
Secondly, let me explain why all this is here.

We, Me, I, the 20 something generation are in a delicate position. We can offer our children avenues down which to travel that lead to a bright and sustainable future. Or we can offer them the dust pan and broom and ask that they clean up our mess.
The choice is up to you.
