Judith Sambrook refused to complete her census form in protest at the involvement of weapons manufacturer Lockheed Martin in processing census data. She has been charged and will appear at Wrexham Magistrates Court on 11th November at 10.00am. Judith, a single parent from Shrewsbury who is on dialysis three days a week, plans to continue her resistance by refusing to pay any fine imposed and is prepared to go to prison if necessary. There will a demonstration and vigil at the magistrates court and at the war memorial in Wrexham:
ASSEMBLE 9.30am OUTSIDE WREXHAM MAGISTRATES COURT on FRIDAY 11 NOVEMBER.
- against war, weapons manufacturers and the arms trade, and against
Lockheed Martin in particular
- in solidarity with Judith and all census refusers
