One week later, 81-year-old anti-nuclear campaigner Georgina Smith of Scotland appeared in court. On Remembrance Day, November 11, 2006, during the year-long Faslane365 series of blockades at Faslane, Britain's Trident nuclear submarine homeport, Smith and Helen John painted "Genocide", "No More War Crimes", "No Upgrade", "Respect the War Dead" and "Art, Law, Morality" on the walls outside of the High Court on Edinburgh's Royal Mile. The action was a protest against the High Court's complicity in the illegal deployment of the genocidal nuclear weapon system by ruling it legal in the Lord Advocates Reference of 2000. In addition, their action condemned the Scottish legal system for holding people who blockaded during Faslane365 for up to thirty hours before releasing them without charge.
