Raytheon Nine trial set to start

Issue No. 2102

The trial of the “Raytheon Nine” anti-war activists is set to start this week in Belfast, and last for up to six weeks.

The nine anti-war protesters, including campaigning journalist Eamonn McCann, occupied and shut down the Derry offices of Raytheon, the fifth biggest arms manufacturer in the world, on Wednesday 9 August 2006.

The action was part of a wider protest at Raytheon’s complicity in the Israeli bombardment of Lebanon and the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
