Twenty-one persons detained at the end of the Sacred Peace Walk

Nine men and twelve women crossed the line at the enttrance of the Nevada Test Site, and were immediately directed to a detention “facility” near the entrance.
Banners were confiscated, except the US flag, which was rejected since the other banners were withheld.

Johnnie Bobb spoke to the policemen and the civilians representing the Department of Energy at the entrance about the not-honouring of the treaty according to which the test site is Western Shoshone Land. Making it a nuclear test site is genocide of his people extended, he said.

We will have full coverage and pictures of walk and vigils shortly.
