|Oberlin 6 Declare Trial a Victory!|
After three days
defending themselves against the charge of unlawful entry for
locking down inside of the Sikorsky conference on April 2, 2001
to protest Plan Colombia, six Oberlin College students were
found guilty and fined $75. Laurel Paget-Seekins, Jackie
Downing, Sarah Saunders, Sarah Bania-Dobyns, Kathleen Berrigan
and Becky Johnson did an outstanding job defending themselves.
They were disappointed that the jury found them guilty,
but were pleased by the awareness raised by their action and
trial. All 6 are thrilled to not be on probation so that
they can continue their work for peace and justice!
