Raging Granny VET ARRESTED M19

by A. Raging Granny (info [at] raginggrannies.com)
Sharon Kufeldt, *national* Vice-President of Veterans for Peace and member of the
Raging Grannies Action League was arrested at Die-In on March 19 in San Francisco.

Other Raging Grannies portrayed mourners at the Die-In. When we realized our Granny Sharon, in her US Air Force cap/fatigues, was being hauled off by police we chanted for her; we were joined in our protestations by fellow demonstrators
