Angie Zelter is a British peace activist and nobel prize nominee, best known as the founder of a number of international campaign groups including Snowball, Trident Ploughshares and the International Woman’s Peace Service.
In 1996 she was one of three women who entered a British Aerospace military site and used hammers to disarm a Hawk Jet, causing £1.5million damage and preventing it from being exported to Indonesia where it was to be used in attacks against East Timor. The jury acquitted the women in a landmark court victory which forced the issue of arms control onto the mainstream agenda.
She was also one of the ‘Trident Three’ who entered a sonar testing station in Scotland in 1999 throwing computers and logbooks in to the loch.
Angie is the author of ‘Trident on Trial: the case for people’s disarmament”, and her latest book is “World in Chains: the impact of nuclear weapons and militarisation from a UK perspective”.
