Stansted 15 tell their story through film

In March 2017, 15 peaceful protesters put up a banner airport-side at Stansted airport to contest a deportation flight on which they knew were people whose cases had not been resolved, who faced grave danger on return to their home countries. The activists, known as the Stansted 15, who were initially convicted under a terrorism-related law for chaining themselves around an immigration removal flight at Stansted airport, have received on early February 2019 suspended sentences or community orders after they were convicted of endangering the safety of an aerodrome following a 10-week trial. A Few weeks later, however, have been ordered back to court on April 2019 over the same incident in a move they have described as “cruel and vindictive” (Taylor, 2019). The Stansted Fifteen, directed and produced by Sue Clayton (2019), tells the yet unfolding story of those activists.
