LIVERMORE -- A planned act of civil disobedience at Lawrence Livermore Laboratory to mark the 67th anniversary of the atomic bombing on Hiroshima, Japan was "pretty uneventful," said a lab spokeswoman.
Anne Stark said a group of about 100 protesters gathered at William Payne Park across from the weapons lab at 4 p.m. Sunday for speeches and calls for a stop to nuclear weapons.
After the speeches, protesters moved across the street to the lab gates and did a symbolic foreclosure on the property.
Four protesters took part in the symbolic closure, and all were arrested, cited and released, Stark said.
No one was injured, and lab operations were not affected, she said.
