Pine Gap protesters vow to continue

December 04, 2017

A group of "peace pilgrims" have been fined for trespassing at the top secret Pine Gap base.

A group of "peace pilgrims" who trespassed at Australia's top secret military intelligence base at Pine Gap last year have avoided jail.

Queenslanders James Dowling, Franz Dowling, Andy Paine, Tim Webb, Margaret Pestorius and Paul Christie were all convicted in the Federal Court in Brisbane on Monday.

But the five men and one woman were all issued fines instead of being sentenced to any prison time for breaking into the joint US defence facility in late 2016.
