Just released: a must-watch short film about the actions and trial of the Stansted 15, the Home Office’s brutal treatment of people, and the incredible support these peaceful protesters have received.
Please be aware the film contains distressing footage of immigration raids and the forcible breaking up of the protest.
In 2017, the Stanstead 15 activists prevented a UK Home Office charter flight plane from departing and were subsequently charged under terrorism laws, the Aviation and Maritime Security Act 1990, which was brought into law after Lockerbie and carries a maximum life sentence. Some of those facing deportation on that flight have since been given leave to remain in the UK, other cases are still pending. The fifteen have launched a joint appeal.
This 20-minute film by director Sue Clayton, made with the Stansted 15’s approval, is free to watch and screen. You can stream of download the film on Vimeo here.
