  1. The trial that has been postponed until November 18 is the trial of Fr. Louie Vitale and Sr. Megan Rice who were arrested at the August 22 2009 ICBM launch from Vandenberg AFB to Kwajalein atoll in the Marshall Islands. That trial will be in Santa Barbara CA. Mark your calender. The trial of the Creech 14 has *not* been postponed and will be on Sept 14 in Las Vegas. see http://www.macgregoreddy.com to check on details of the ICBM protest. There is still room on the bus that will leave the West Oakland BART at 4:30 pm Sept 14, pick up people at San Jose Curtner light rail station at 5:30pm , and pick up in Salinas at 7 pm.
