The Stansted 15 are 15 activists who successfully grounded a mass deportation charter flight in March 2017 by locking themselves down in front of the aircraft’s wheel.
On Monday 10th December – International Human Rights Day – they were convicted for preventing this charter deportation flight through peaceful direct action.
