Liverpool Catholic Worker Resurfaces!

The photos include one of a resurfaced Liverpool Catholic Worker. The Liverpool CW was born out of the trial & acquittal of the Seeds of Hope" Ploughshares trial in July '96. (see chronology section "Seeds of Hope Ploughshares on www.plowsharesactions.org )

The Liverpool Catholic Worker saw a community of CW's & East Timorese exiles sustain a rhythym of steady resistance at British Aerospace, Warton (1996-99), Lancashire where the "Seeds of Hope" disarmament of a British Aerospace (BAe) Hawk Fighter had taken place Jan' 03 The disarmed Hawk was in Indonesian Air Force markings days from export to Indonesia in its genocidal war on the people of East Timor. believing the fighter plane jinxed the Indonesian military would not accept it demanding a replacement.

East Timor is now free of a genocidal Indonesian military occupation, expert witness at the trial, Jose Ramos Horte, is now East Timor's Prime Minister, the "Seeds of Hope" gather iin Liverpool for their 10th. anniversary of their acquittal. Defending solicitor Gareth Pierce (Birmingham 6, Guilford, Guantonomo & every lost cause in England) continues her sterling work. Defence Barrister Vera Baird (also for the later "Bread not Bombs" Plowshares aka the "Swedes of Hope") is now MP for Redcar. Trial Liverpool/deployed local solidarity organiser is presently on trial in Dublin for the "Pit Stop" Ploughshares action.

The Liverpool CW faced a sustained backlash from the BAe corporation & British state that included high court injunction, arrests & infiltration by Lancashire Special Branch & a private intelligence corporation (that also ran 6 agents in Campaign Against the Arms Trade).
(SeeThe Damage Done Alan Fossey & the Liverpool Catholic Worker as a subsection of

Before their understandable disintergration the Liverpool CW's produced a wonderful t-shirt inspired by a derogotory remark by the then Home Secretary Jack Straw at a Confernce on Prisons "Scousers are always up to Something!" You betcha Jack! The above t-shirt was later popularised by the punk rock director Alex Cox ("Repo Man", "Sid & Nancy", "Walker" "Highway Patrolman") on dodgy late night British TV & while making his latest film "Revenger's Tragedy. Alex also reproduced a version for his production company Avenging Angel.
