On Thursday may 11th at 11.30 am four antimilitarist activists will be on trial for a military train blockade in fall 2004.

The trial has been postponed already two times, the last one because of the absence of the witnesses (4 policemen) for the prosecution without giving any reason.

Today saw the latest of Tyneside's monthly critical masses which take place on the 1st Saturday of the month, meeting 12noon at Haymarket.
Another glorious hot day spent with new friends going round the city centre streets.

The driver of 'Corporate Hospitality' coaches wasn't too happy though, hee hee.
