The L.A. Catholic Worker, Guadalupe Catholic Worker, and Las Vegas Catholic Worker gathered at the Vandenberg AFB main gate, on California’s central coast, to vigil in commemoration of the 69th anniversary of bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, on August 6 and August 9, 1945. As a witness against diabolical nuclear weapons and U.S. imperial war-making, five Catholic Workers–Karan Benton, Mike Wisniewski, and Jeff Dietrich from the LACW, Mark Kelso from the Las Vegas CW, and Rev. Steve Kelly, SJ. from Oakland and Redwood City CW were arrested. All were cited for trespassing and released an hour and a half later at Vandenberg Village. See photos HERE.
UPDATE: Arraignment date is 1pm Thursday, October 16, 2014, in Santa Barbara Federal Bankruptcy Court.
