15 protesters arrested at Vandenberg
February 28, 2012
Vandenberg Air Force Base police arrested 15 protesters who trespassed onto federal property shortly before Saturday’s successful launch of an unarmed Minuteman III ballistic missile.
Those arrested said they were peacefully protesting “anti-nuclear missile defense.”
Vandenberg officials will release more information about the arrests after federal charges are filed. The protesters will be tried in a Los Angeles based federal court.
