Staff Report


Trial is set for 9 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 9 for six protestors arrested during last year’s Hiroshima Day demonstration at Los Alamos National Laboratory.


The trial will be heard by Judge Alan Kirk in Los Alamos Municipal Court, 2500 Trinity Dr., in Los Alamos.

Police arrested the six protestors Aug. 6 on LANL property and charged them with criminal trespass, refusing to obey an officer and obstructing movement.
The protestors include Pam Gilchrist and Cathie Sullivan of Santa Fe; Benjamin (Summer) Abbott, Janet Greenwald and Barbara Grothus of Albuquerque and Wind Euler of Tucson, Ariz. They each face punishments of up to 179 days in jail and fines of up to $1,500.
The LANL 6, their supporters and defense team invite the public to join them at a fundraiser from 2:30-4:30 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 6 at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 107 West Barcelona St., in Santa Fe, to help cover their legal expenses.
