An anti-nuclear protest at Los Alamos National Laboratory Friday led to the arrest of six men and two women.
A national youth-led network working for nuclear abolition called “Think Outside the Bomb” began their five-hour event with a vigil at Ashley Pond.
The group of about 120 then filed onto the far-right traffic lane of Trinity Drive marching west toward LANL. As traffic bogged down, police arrived in patrol cars and provided an escort of sorts in front, behind and next to the marchers.
The agreement reached with authorities prior to the protest established that the protestors would not block traffic and would gather at a designated location near the LANL sign.
The group disrupted traffic on Trinity Drive, Diamond Drive and the intersection near the LANL sign before moving to an area in front of the CMRR access building.
The eight protestors arrested were charged with state misdemeanor trespassing after sitting on the ground with arms and hands locked together blocking the door of the building as rain slapped the sidewalk, protestors and police.
The eight volunteered to be arrested.
