I finally appeared in court in Bishop Auckland to face the heinous charge of ‘Obstruction of the Highway’ after being arrested at the start of May. This has been one of the tactics the Tories have used to prevent us from being effective, and it bloody worked. Bastards! I tried to defend myself but to no avail and was found guilty and fined the maximum of £50, with £30 costs, to be paid back at £1 a week due to my having no income. No real complaints because the pigs only lied a little bit. At least I don’t have to go back to Woodside and can resume picketing at Tow Law so it was well worth it!
