Dissent on trial: Women for Peace in court
March 8 2005

Two women from Women for Peace will be appearing at Melbourne magistrates Court on 7th and 8th March to defend their protest at the Shine of Remembrance on 11/11/03, where they were attacked, assaulted and arrested. They welcome supporters and claim that the right of dissent is on trial.

On 11/11/03, with the illegal invasion of Iraq killing 100,000 people, eight women from Women for Peace: No Weapons No Wars, went to the Melbourne Shrine on Remembrance Day to protest against all wars, and to grieve for victims killed and wounded. Caprice was assaulted by an ex-service man, then arrested and charged with trespass, assaulting police, & resisting arrest. Reta was charged with trespass, resisting arrest & offensive behaviour. The man was commended for assisting police, and NOT charged.

In November 2004 Reta Kaur was acquitted of criminal damage after she wrote 'the killing has started' in red paint and placed red handprints on two statues outside the US Consulate in Melbourne in 2003.
