FOUR ARRESTED AT MARCH 3 VIGIL

The chief of public affairs for the base, Jeremy Eggers, was present wearing a suit and tie, but nobody was asked to present ID.  However, after a two minute warning, though they did not cross the line, Dennis Apel, MacGregor Eddy, Fr. Steve Kelly, and Jorge Manly-Gil were detained as a result of their “ban and bar” letter, taken to the visitor center and cited for illegal trespass then released.  The MP’s approached Bud Boothe in a respectful manner, but did not arrest him.  They wanted Bud to sign a piece of paper, but when he refused, they left. A reporter from the Santa Maria Sun was present to cover the vigil, as well as the L.A. Catholic Worker Community and supporters from Santa Barbara.

The base has received many letters and press inquiries about the mistreatment Bud Boothe received on November 4.   His arraignment remains scheduled for March 18 at 1:30 pm.  Bud has retained Catherine Swysen, of Sanger and Swysen, as his counsel. Please send letters of support to: Bud Boothe, P.O. Box 464, Los Olivos, CA 93441.  He does not use e-mail.

The next monthly vigil will be Wednesday, April 7, at 4pm at the front gate on Highway One six miles north of Lompoc.  Please do not park in the middle school parking lot, park on Mountain View Street near the school and walk to the front gate. Please join us.
