Professor Gavan McCormack spoke to MHAC supporters and friends on 29th May 2018 at the Otley Courthouse. This is a brief summary of his talk.

 

The Menwith Hill Accountability Campaign opposed the holding of the largest arms fair in London in 2017. It was good that one of our active supporters was able to participate.

The trial of Steven Wayne Higgins took place in Leeds Crown Court from Monday 14 August to Thursday 17 August 2017. Mr Higgins was charged with causing Grievous Bodily Harm to Barbara Penny while she was peacefully demonstrating at NSA/NRO Menwith Hill (Nessfield Gate) during the weekly Tuesday pm demonstration on 11 August 2015.

 

About 100 people attended the demonstration at Menwith Hill on Tuesday 4th July, at which the Declaration of Independence from America was read and a letter given to the RAF Liaison Officer, Geoff Dickson, to be handed in to the US Chief of Station, Miriam Garrant.

The annual Independence from America demonstration at Menwith Hill in 2015 was remarkable in several respects. Sunshine, a play area for children, a small number of good humored police and the presence of other peace groups all helped. Good vegetarian food provided by the 1 – 12 Café Collective was enjoyed and the CAAB stall did good business selling the last of the special “Over the Hill” Menwith mugs along with several copies of Margaret Nunnerley’s book “Surveillance, Secrecy and Sovereignty”.
