Chris Wainwright (2nd from right) and Chris Butler (on right) have been charged with obstructing the police and disorderly behaviour following events at the Cenotaph on Anzac Day.
Mr. Wainwright, a political science lecturer, Mr. G. Bertram a geography Lecturer with Chris Butler and David Young (two students), decided to lay a wreath for the dead and dying on both sides in Vietnam.
Obtaining permission from an RSA official to lay their wreath after the official ceremony they were surprised to see it removed by an RSA member.
Told by the police they would be arrested if the wreath was laid again. Messrs Wainwright and Butler laid it once more.
They were subsequently arrested, and charged. Last Wednesday they were remanded on bail of £50.
