Fast and Pray

Susan Clarkson, Martin Newell, and Chris Cole are three Christian peace activists, part of the Catholic Worker movement in the UK. They will be in court on Tuesday 24 May from 9:30 at Newbury Crown Court to face trial for an action last September, whereby they cut a hole in the fence at AWE nuclear weapons factory and proclaimed it "open for disarmament."

The Catholic Worker movement is made up of Christians committed to Jesus' radical call to peacemaking, and live this out by acts of community, solidarity with the poor, and nonviolent resistance.

If you can't make it to Newbury on the day but would like to support them please join in this fast. How you take part in the fast is up to you. 

If you leave a message for them as a comment here the messages will be gathered up and given to them the day before the hearing.
