ONE ARREST AT MISSILE LAUNCH PROTEST
MacGregor Eddy was arrested at 5am, August 13, at the front gate of Vandenberg Space Command. She was a participant in a protest against the Minuteman III ICBM test launch that took place earlier that morning. The planned peaceful protest was part of the Nuclear Free Future Month of the United for Peace and Justice DISARM task force and the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom DISARM committee.
MacGregor did not “cross the line” or do anything to provoke arrest, which has drawn the interest of the ACLU, as it believes the military is unlawfully attempting to exert authority over civilians and deny them their constitutional right of assembly and free speech.
MacGregor received two citations, one for trespassing and one for resisting arrest and obstructing an officer. The second citation because she declined to give her name or produce identification when confronted as the presumed and alleged spokesperson of the protest.
