Six activists -- Janet Greenwald, Wind Euler, Summer Abbott, Cathie Sullivan, Pam Gilchrist, and Barbara Grothus -- were arrested on August 6, 2012 when they blocked entrance to Los Alamos National Laboratory as part of the Nuke Free Now week of action. The LANL 6 are anti-nuclear, antiwar and environmental activists calling attention to the dangers and harm of obsolete nuclear weapons, as well as the devastating U.S. policy of ignoring the real national security threat of catastrophic climate change. They are charged with trespass, disobeying a police officer, and obstructing movement. Each defendant faces up to 6 months in jail. Their trial is taking place on Thursday, January 9 at the Los Alamos Municipal Court.
The LANL 6 are seeking to redirect our resources from nuclear weapons and war to address the real national security threat of catastrophic climate change. They are out on recognizance bonds and intend to raise at trial the illegal, immoral, expensive, and damaging impact of Los Alamos National Laboratory's and its archaic but deadly nuclear mission. On Sunday, January 6 in Santa Fe, a solidarity party and fundraiser was held for the LANL 6. As you can see in this hour-long video from the event, the turnout and speakers were awesome!
