No Jail - only fines



Quick update. We have just come out of court and are VERY excited. What can only be described as a small slap on the wrists, the 4 have emerged from court with only small fines, ranging from $1,250-$450 each.

The public gallery erupted into song, applause, cheers and hugs and the feeling of victory and vindication was in the air.

Justice Sally Thomas noted their good behaviour and co-operation in the sentencing decision.

"All four were very genuine in the cause they sought to espouse," said Justice Thomas, "however their actions - no matter for what cause - cannot justify the breaking of the law."

We are all about to celebrate - YAY!

To chief bastard - maybe if you didn't swear so much and moved beyond sarcasm we might leave your posts up. Looked at your blog - funny enough you didn't choose to share any of your thoughts.

There's enough hatred around, we don't need to air anymore on sites aiming for peace.

Have a go at some constructive criticism and I promise to publish your post....

I'll give you some constructive criticism.

Iran is building nuclear weapons with the express intent of committing genocide against the Jews in Israel.

Will you go to Iran and stop this?

Get serious, Evil, these folks might gnash their teeth and rend their garments over the cartoon fascisti they invent for their shabby street theater; but they're as tame as little kittens in the face of the real thing.

Of course not. Can't get the taxpayers to fund it, and it might be dangerous.
