Write to UK Peace Prisoners
Mar 21, 2003, 17:01
Philip Pritchard (Potty Phil) and Toby Olditch are on remand at HMP Gloucester for attempting to disarm B-52 Bombers at the USAF base at Fairford, near Swindon.

The activists, Phillip Pritchard and Toby Olditch, were on their way to hammer on the bomb bay doors to prevent them from opening and dropping bombs, hammer on the jet engines and put loose nuts and bolts into the engines to prevent the bomber from taking off. They carried warning signs to post onto the bomber to warn the aircraft should not be operated. Besides notices, paint, and seeds, a banner saying "Hope and Resistance" was carried.

The two activists are charged with conspiracy to cause criminal damage, going equipped to cause criminal damage, and aggravated trespass.

They will appear in court again probably next Tuesday at Cheltenham Magistrates Court, and will apply for bail. So, if you’re in the UK, get something in the post first class so it should arrive Monday.

Put the name of the activist followed by;
HMP Gloucester
Barracks Square
Gloucester
GL1 2JN

As always with writing to prisoners, put a return address on the back of the envelope.

=================

Last week THIRTY of the spully vehicles for the B52s at Fairford were disabled in one night!
