In the autumn of 2008, activists from the antimiltaristic network Ofog disarmed fourteen rocket propelled grenades at Saab Bofors Dynamics weapons factory in Eskilstuna. The two activists, Anna Andersson and Martin Smedjeback, were sentenced to four mounths imprisonment each in Eskilstuna district court. At the same trial Smedjeback was also sentenced to pay damages of 155 000 SEK (about 15 000 euros) for having climbed the fence at arms factory Aimpoint in Malmö. Both these cases where put on appeal and will now be tried again in Svea hovrätt (Court of Appeal) in Stockholm.
We invite you to have breakfast with Ofog outside the court from 8.00 a.m. and then to join the trial starting at 9:30. In the evening the same day Ofog will hosts a café night with films from the action and nice food and music.
Come join us and listen to the Swedish arms exports being discussed in the Court of appeal!
Time: Wednesday April 21st 2010. Breakfast from 8:00. Court hearing starts at 9:30 and finishes at the latest 16:30 the same day.
