October 29, 1979 Lockheed Protest 2

Bob Aldridge, member of the Penninsula Pacific Life Community remembers this action:

In this particular action groups of protesters invaded several Lockheed buildings by simply walking past security guards without stopping, and then dispersed inside to deliver leaflets to workers. Janet [Bob’s wife] was one of the invaders — she is in both pictures. I was police liaison for this action and it was rather amusing. The police and security had to search the buildings to find all the “alleged trespassers.” Every so often Captain Michaelis would tell me how many they had found and ask if there were any more. I kept telling him to search further until they finally found everyone. We had a good rapport with the police and Lockheed security.

The gathering and action in 2015 will continue a long line of demonstrations, and the PLC will take faithful action and get in the way of the bomb-makers as long as nuclear weapons and injustice continue to exist.
