Thursday 20TH October
Two people who sat in front of a truck involved in construction work at Enoggera Army base in Brisbane, are due to appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court for a hearing today.
Jim Dowling and Culley Palmer blocked the entrance to the base in July this year, in an action opposing the war in Afghanistan and the Rockhampton war games which were occurring at the time.
The pair will argue that they had a right and duty under international law to intervene in what they believed was a war crime, that is the waging a war of aggression against the people of Afghanistan.
The pair were charged with being a public nuisance, contravening a police direction , and hindering police.
Phone Jim 34253003 or Culley 0448364227
