Woman over line

On 5 September, Yorkshire peace activist Lindis Percy repeatedly disobeyed an illegal police instruction not to cross a yellow line painted on the road outside ‘RAF’ Menwith Hill – a spy base run by the US national security agency.

Lindis, who has held a weekly vigil outside Menwith for many years, previously won a ruling that she could go 18 inches beyond the line as it did not have planning permission.

Lindis therefore crossed the line and was carried back by the police, repeating her action until it was time for tea. More info: CAAB
