Screening of ‘Seeds of Hope’ Ploughshares Film

After decorating the venue with banners (also old and new), the event kicked off with an introduction by Ciaron O’Reilly to a film about the Seeds of Hope Ploughshares Women who in 1996 disarmed a Hawk fighter jet bound for Indonesia at Warton in Lancashire. The subsequent trial was held in Liverpool six months later where the jury went on to acquit the women of all charges – the first Ploughshares acquittal in 55 trials – accepting their defence that they “were acting to prevent British Aerospace and the British Government from aiding and abetting genocide” in East Timor.
