March 16th Civil Disobediance Action

Wednesday, March 16, 2005
Our demonstration at the Downtown Federal Building this morning was a sucess! As planned LA Catholic Workers Catherine Morris and David Gardner along with Jesuit Volunteer Corp. member Sara Suman were arrested as part of a planned civil disobediance action in front of the Federal Building. Unfortunatly our friends from the Dept. of Homeland Security were a little anxious and we were unable to setup our altar mourning those who have died during the ongoing conflict in Iraq. Initially the officers told us that we would be immediatly booked into the Metropolitan Detention Center, however after, two hours in holding cells we were released on our own recognisance. According to the officers this was because they were going to be getting busy and be bringing in the real criminals soon.
