Flying The Flag: Arming The World

Hastings Against War offers an opportunity to watch the film, Flying the Flag: Arming the World by John Pilger. This film is over 20 years old but worthwhile viewing to remind ourselves of the UK arms industry then and now. HOT’s Zelly Restorick writes.

The Times' report of the women's acquittal and Andrea's hammer.

Hammer blow against genocide

Local resident, mother and peace and environmental campaigner, Andrea Needham, is putting the finishing touches to her book, The Hammer Blow. Coming up on 29 January 2016 is the 20th anniversary of the action, in which four women disarmed a Hawk warplane bound for Indonesia, to stop it being used in illegally-occupied East Timor. After six months in prison awaiting trial, they were acquitted of all charges. HOT’s Zelly Restorick reports.
