I refuse to pay


Fr. Martin was in court on 28th February over a fine, resulting from a protest outside the DSEI arms fair in 2009. He was given 28 days to pay.

Martin said: “I am continuing this objection as an act of solidarity with all those who suffer injustice and violence as a result of the arms trade.” Friends including the Passionist Provincial Fr. John Kearns came to the court today to support Fr. Martin.

In case you missed it, here he is speaking outside the court.
