What happens when a Quaker and a Methodist Reverend break into a secure weapons factory to cause billions of pounds worth of criminal damage?
Anti-arms and peace activists Sam Walton and Samuel ‘Woody’ Woodhouse attempted to disarm state-of-the-art eurofighter typhoon jets that were being sold to Saudi Arabia to be used in the Yemen Civil War.
After being caught in the act, arrested and charged with criminal damage, the pair expected to go to jail for up to 10 years. But, extraordinarily, the judge found them both not guilty. This is their story.
Using intimate interviews, documents and objects, ‘Investigators’ relives shocking and fearless crime stories through the eyes of those involved.

Why they did that is because they believe in the greater good. Man..... Asset's life is tough. Good thing I didn't sign those papers.

I don't know, what they did is still illegal regardless of the reasons why they did it. I agree that what the UK government is doing by selling arms to the Saudi Arabians is wrong, but using violence to stop violence doesn't work and only escalates the situation and helps no one.

Yet is it not obvious if Britain wouldnt have sold weapons to Saudi Arabia, then russia or china would have stepped in to fill the order.

What good does this do though? If it's not weapons from BAE or Lockheed it'll be from China or Russia. There is no shortage of suppliers of weapons, at least most of the weapons from the UK and the US are relatively accurate and precise with minimal unintended casualties unlike those purchased from other sources that will just be dropped on mass for maximum casualties in the vicinity.

If they did damage to several million worth equipment then they would rot in cell but all they did was damage to fence which is dollars worth.. so no biggie. 10 years in prison for something like that? No sane judge would do it.

I used to work in a defense company where they manufactured munitions. Found out that the US government was selling those to Saudi Arabia and one of the wreckage of bombs made in the factory was used to blow up a school bus full of children in Yemen. Disgusting. I quit the company. I couldnt be a part of it.

BAE's comment is basically just saying we are just following what is legal. That's where the problem lies. we need to change the law to stop companies selling weapons to countries that commit war crimes.

It would be a crime to sentence them. They saw the evidence of the weapons, sold by that company, hurting people and then destroyed other weapons so other people could not be hurt. That would be like sentencing somebody who smashes a burning car's window to pull out a person. They could have used salt water in the cockpit, though, that would have completely trashed everything in there.

They didn't really do any damage, so putting them in jail for 10 years would have been a total waste of time, create a lot of media attention, and probably a strong backlash.

Where are the Houthi rebels in Yemen getting drones/ballistic missiles etc. that have been shot down over Riyadh, airport getting blown up in Najran, Aramco refineries getting hit. I’m in no way saying what’s happening is justified but to paint it as one sided is just not true.

What a bunch of morons, They could destroy every weapon sold out of the UK and it would make no difference. They will just buy it from someone else. You are making 0 difference and showing how stupid you are. It's like arresting a drug dealer you think yay i got drugs off the street. but really all you did was make it so 2-3+ people think oh now i can take his spot and it gets worse. If you really wanna stop this..... leave them to kill each other.. till only a few are left. Stupid people will always try to blow themselves up

These brave souls actually did something to save lives. They took action. They didn't just grab a pre-made, George Soros-provided sign and chanted some silly rhyme like sheep while attempting to block traffic like the useless idiot SJWs in America. These men devised a plan, put it in motion and faced the consequences like adults. Be like these men. The cause was just. Their actions were dangerous. But the end result may have saved actual lives. And that is enough for me to know that these guys have hearts of gold. I may not have gone as far as them but I applaud their gumption and acceptance of any punishment they knew they stood to face. Cheers and applause to both of these fine men of character and heart.
