Daughter of Los Alamos Activist Arrested at LANL

on August 6, 2012 - 10:26am

Barbara Grothus is arrested this morning along with five other protesters after blocking traffic near the entrance to Los Alamos National Laboratory. Grothus is the daughter of longtime Los Alamos activist Ed Grothus who died from cancer. Following this morning's arrest, several more protesters entered the street near the same location and blocked traffic for about five minutes. No arrests were made during that action. The protesters have now left LANL property and are marching across the Omega Bridge heading toward the Los Alamos County Detention Facility. They said that they intend to chant outside the jail in a show of solidarity for the six protestors detained inside. Photo by Bonnie J. Gordon/ladailypost.com
