He was defending other PCS activists who had been accused of causing criminal damage to British manufacturers that were making weapons for Israel.
Chris participated in the yearly Great Ride for Palestine and has been particularly active in recent years in favor of the Palestinian cause. He worked at Vauxhalls and was a longtime T&GWU and Unite campaigner. From even before the start of the Miners’ Strike, he had been an active member of the Trades Council’s delegate body.
