Iraq War Goes on Trial in Upstate NY
06 Apr 2005
On March 17, 2003, four Catholic Workers from Ithaca NY walked into a local military recruiting station, poured blood on the walls, posters, flag, and carpet, knelt for prayer, and waited for the authorities. Surprisingly, in April 2004, the prosecution of the four war resistors in state court ended in a mistrial, with the jury deadlocked 9-3 in favor of acquittal. Four months later, however, the federal government jumped into the fray and issued subpoenas. With the trial to start this summer in Binghamton, NY, the "St. Patrick Four" face six years in prison (or more) if convicted. Provided is an audio link to an exclusive, in-studio interview with the four defendants.
An in-studio interview (35 minutes) with the four defendants, who now face federal prosecution by legal goons of the same Attorney General who called international treaties "quaint." Their defense rests ultimately on the legal protections afforded them by the Nuremberg Laws, which allow citizens to break local laws in an effort to stop war crimes. So this case DIRECTLY questions the legality of the war--and explains why the US Government has so much at stake. Visit the website here to find link to archived mp3 file:
