The Hammer Blow: How Ten Women Disarmed A Warplane

Stop: Hammer time

"Anyone interested in social change, or campaigning for peace, should read this book."

- Caroline Lucas
Peace campaigner Andrea Needham discusses her book detailing her involvement alongside another nine women in the daring disarmament of a Hawk warplane bound for Indonesia, with household hammers. They were arrested, charged with £2.4m of criminal damage, and sent to prison to await trial. A week later, Angie Zelter joined them, accused of conspiracy. After six months in prison, all four were acquitted by a Liverpool jury in a court case that effectively put Britain’s arms trade on trial. This event is free with guaranteed entry.
