‘CSI:Lockheed Martin’

Patrick Sieber Around the Province

Tom Ennis and I, along with 12 others, were arrested at the Lockheed Martin munitions plant on March 20, the anniversary of the start of the Gulf War.

Lockheed Martin is the largest weapons manufacturer in the world. Its weapons systems have murdered untold thousands.

We, as a group, were moved from mourning the deaths to resistance. Armed with crime scene tape, we attempted to make a citizens arrest for “corporate criminal activity.” The “Lords of War” at Lockheed heard of some criminal activity (ours not theirs) at their gates and sent the police to disperse the “mob” (as we were called).

We spent some time in the police van and then went to station where we were charged with criminal trespass. We were given a fine and a court date.
