My name is Judith Sambrook and I am up in court this coming Friday, the 11 th of November for refusing to fill in the census on the grounds I could never do it while Lockheed- Martin have the contract for data collection of the census.
We, at NoConCensus, are holding a demonstration and vigil on behalf of ALL CENSUS RESISTERS and against LOCKHEED-MARTIN and the arms trade. This shall be out side Wrecsam magistrates court from 9.30 am more details are on Indymedia.
I am pleading not guilty on the grounds of human rights - as, the issue is this - does the state have a right to come between a person and their conscience ? The answer to this is ' No, they bloody well don't.'
We also want to offer solidarity and practicle support to anyone else who is resisting - so , if you, or any one you know is in this position, then please get in touch and know this , you are not alone.
If anyone would like to attend this demonstration and vigil, please come along, you would be welcome - this is on behalf of all census resisters - there are more specified details on Indymedia and I can be contacted on email@example.com
- direct, where I shall attempt to answer all emails and enquiries.
I am not afraid - I am a single mother on dialysis, but sometimes the issues are so great and so much is at stake because friends, I want you to consider this important fact - should I be found guilty, this would, in effect say the state does hold the right to compell us to things we do not want to do, even when, as this, the issue, in this instance Lockheed Martin, are one of the most unethical companies in the world. Their trade is death, mine is peace. Should I lose it would be a bleak day for all of us , and what ever the circumstances, even if I go to prison, I will never sign that form nor shall I pay any fine imposed.
My best wishes to all
