Mother of local peace movement is free


My dear friend Eve Tetaz was release from police custody Saturday at 3:00 p.m. The judge on duty arraigned her and made it clear that he did not want to hold her any longer. Monday she returns to D.C. Superior Court on a status hearing from an earlier case. Then the following Monday, the 9th, she appears again to begin a jury trial with six other co-defendants. That one stems from a protest in March in the Hart Senate Office Building atrium during the same hour the Senate voted for additional monies for war and occupation.

Eve's co-defendants include: Ellen Barfield of Maryland, David Barrows of D.C., Gordon Clark of Maryland, Sam Crook of Maryland, Joy First of Wisconsin and Malachy Kilbride of Virginia.

Sunday morning Eve was considering her next action against war and how to best mourn all those lost to violence. One idea is bringing the grief of all those of conscience to the Pentagon.
