St. Patrick's Four

Two days before the Bush/Cheney invasion of Iraq, four Catholic Workers from Ithaca, NY went to a military recruiter's station and engaged in a non-violent act of civil disobedience. They were charged with criminal mischief, and tried in the Tompkins County Courthouse. Nine of twelve jurors voted to acquit in April of 2004.

The federal government has since decided to charge the four with conspiracy. On Monday, September 19, 2005, they go on trial at the federal courthouse in Binghamton, NY.

I urge people to support he St. Patrick's Four. If possible, besides participating in the tasks suggested on their site, it would be beneficial to have letters to the editor of the Binghamton newspaper. Write to : The Press & Sun-Bulletin, P.O. Box 1270, Binghamton, NY 13902; or e-mail at: pressconnects.com

Thank you for your attention to this important case.
