Civil Disobedience & Arrests at Livermore Labs
Mon Apr 25 2011 (Updated 04/26/11)
Good Friday/Earth Day Protest at the Livermore Nuclear Weapons Laboratory
Livermore Lab was founded to develop the hydrogen bomb, and new weapons of mass destruction are still designed there. For more than 25 years, people of faith and others concerned about the proliferation of nuclear weapons have gathered on Good Friday outside the Livermore Laboratory. This year Good Friday and Earth Day coincided.

To protest the continued development of nuclear weapons in the Bay Area and the United States, a demonstration called "For the Beauty of the Earth: Good Friday, Earth Day & The Bomb, The Cross in the Midst of Creation" was held at Livermore Nuclear Lab in Livermore on April 22nd. At dawn, an interfaith prayer service was followed by Stations of the Cross. The demonstration ended at the front gate with the mass arrest of approximately two dozen protesters who refused to stop blocking the entrance when ordered to by police.
