The Raytheon 9 trial in Belfast is going through some twists and turns.
The Prosecution finished about a week ago and some of the evidence
given in direct testimonyby police and Raytheon employees has helped
to build the defence case
-linking the Derry plant to Raytheon's international works and
killing in Lebanon.
-the lack of violence amongst the 9 who were charged with affray and
5 other charges.
Monday saw the defence call their opening witness Eamonn McCann and
here is relflection I wrote later (we were not allowed to take notes
in the courtroom)
Tuesday saw the charge of affray dropped
Here's something from BBC published on that

Since Wednesday there has been some strange twists and turns and the
trial is now poised at a pivitol moment. A gag order operates under
the laws of subjudice. The defence has requested people not publish
their speculations etc.
The trial has been adjourned to Friday June 5th., 2 pm Laganside
Court 14 Belfast. The jury has not been dismissed.
Support the defendants - oppose Raytheon.

The prophets tell us who we could be,
So we hide the poor,
And kill the prophets."
