TWO ARRESTED AT JULY 27 FAILED MISSILE LAUNCH

The July 27th test missile launch by USA in violation of Non Proliferation Treaty failed!

Fr. Louie Vitale and MacGregor Eddy were arrested at 1:20 am July 27, cited, and released for trespass while protesting the launch of a nuclear weapon delivery system from Vandenberg Air Force Base. The missile was destroyed by Vandenberg Air Force Base over the Pacific Ocean because of a malfunction.

Jim Haber and Mary Lou Anderson of the Nevada Desert Experience as well as world war II veteran Bud Boothe and legal observer Kelly Gray also attended. The nuclear capable, solid fuel, high speed test missile was set to land in Kwajalein atoll, the Marshall Islands.

NEW COURT DATE

Fr Louie Vitale, O.F.M. and Dennis Apel court date was postponed until Sept 15. 2011. Fr. Louie and Dennis did appear for arraignment in Santa Barbara Federal Court on June 16. However, due to a 9th District Court ruling on a different but similar case, it was believed that the charges would be dropped. The court, however, decided to uphold the charges and the new date was set.
