28 Arrested in Livermore During Annual Good Friday Weapons Protest

Twenty-eight protesters were arrested outside the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, in Livermore, California, on Friday, April 14. The protest is held annually on Good Friday to protest the lab’s involvement in building military weapons.

Protesters told NBC Bay Area reporters they want the lab to thrive, but wish operators would shift from nuclear weapon development to green energy.
