5.0 out of 5 stars a splendid book about an amazing people's movement, 17 Nov 2003
This review is from: Trident on Trial: The Case for People's Disarmament: People's Disarmement and the Trident v. 3 (Paperback)
Angie Zelter, well known for all her hard work and positive direct action to try make the world a safer, fairer and happier place for all, has written and compiled an incredible book in 'Trident on Trial'.
The book is about the campaign known as Trident Ploughshares, a campaign where ordinary people, after years of attempting through the usual channels, begin to disarm Britain's nuclear submarine fleet themselves, in a fully open, accountable and non-violent manner. The campaign has strong legal authoritity, as nuclear weapons are illegal under international law.
The book focusses on the action, by three women including Angie, when they boarded the nuclear research barge Maytime, moored in Loch Goil, Scotland, and disarmed it by peacefully emptying its contents (largely computers) into the loch, and hammering on various immovable pieces of equipment. The book discusses the five months spent on remand in prison, the complex legal battle through the courts, and the amazing acquittal by a truly enlightened judge in Greenock, leading to the nuclear issue being pushed into the limelight for new discussion. Interspersed throughout this main story are short pieces of writing by many of the campaign's 'pledgers', about their individual experiences of 'peoples disarmament'.
An awe inspiring story, and a book that everyone should read if only as a piece of the history (and indeed future) of our generation.
