Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lindis Percy (born 1944, Leeds) is a prominent peace activist in the United Kingdom and founding member and joint coordinator of the Campaign for the Accountability of American Bases. Reporting for The Guardian, journalist Rob Evans claimed that "there must surely be few Britons who have been arrested in political protests as many times as [Lindis Percy] has." She is a trained nurse, midwife and health visitor and has worked for the National Health Service her entire working life. Percy attended the Department of Peace Studies, University of Bradford in the late 1980s. As an activist, she uses non-violent direct action and civil disobedience. Percy also uses legal challenges, often assisted by solicitor Mark Stephens and barrister, Keir Starmer QC, now Director of Public Prosecutions (England & Wales), and sometimes acts as a litigant in person to make her protests.show more
