They call themselves the “LANL Six.”

On Wednesday, the six protesters who were arrested at the gate to the Los Alamos National Laboratory Aug. 6, will make a court appearance in Los Alamos Municipal Court before Judge Alan Kirk.

The six protesters were charged with trespass, refusing to obey an officer and obstructing movement. Each could spend 179 days in jail and be fined up to $1,500.  

The LANL Six are Pam Gilchrist and Cathie Sullivan of Santa Fe; Benjamin (Summer) Abbott, Janet Greenwald and Barbara Grothus of Albuquerque; and Wind Euler of Tucson, Ariz.

The LANL Six, their supporters and their defense team, have invited the public to join them from 2:30-4:30 p.m. Sunday at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 107 West Barcelona St., Santa Fe.

Also, they invite all environmental and anti-nuclear activists to demonstrate outside of the courthouse on the morning of their trial.
