Part Two: UC Regents Ignore Massive Resistance, Vote to Build Nukes

4_5.jpgUC San Francisco, March 25, 2005 - Today witnessed a passionate display of concern and anger at the decision that the University of California will bid with corporate war profiteer, Bechtel, for the nuclear labs at Los Alamos.

In a time when many schools are on break, more than four dozen students, mostly organized by UC Santa Cruz's Students Against War (SAW), woke at 4:30am to attend the UC Regents meeting in San Francisco. With strong words and strong actions, these students did everything in their power to ensure that they would not be silenced and that the interests of the globe would not be ignored. However, the UC Regents voted unanimously to bid, with Bechtel and two other suspicious corporations, on the management of Los Alamos labs.

The University of California has been responsible for every nuclear weapon in the U.S. stockpile, including those dropped on Japan. This year will be the 60th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima.

Protesters Attacked in Garden Grove, CA

5/25/2005: Two people protesting the "Minutemen" in Garden Grove, CA were hit by a car driven by what was presumed by witnesses to be a Minuteman or one of their supporters. Local TV news reports are confirming the attack and reporting that the driver of the car was arrested. No information on the condition of those attacked is available.

Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist, who describes himself as a "conservative and a left-wing wacko," announced that he would address his followers at 7:30 p.m. on May 25th in Garden Grove, in what seems to be an attempt to expand his project to Southern California. In response, some pro-immigrant activists pledged to be there to voice their dissent inside and outside the meeting place at 6:30 p.m.
