On March 17th, 2003, 48-hours before the bombings started in Iraq, a group of peaceful, anti-war protesters poured their own blood on the walls of a military recruiting center in Lansing, NY, knelt down and prayed. They were charged in state court with criminal mischief and trespassing and the trial ended with a hung jury. From there the DA decided to refer their case to the Federal government and the Saint Patrick's Four were then put on trial in Binghamton, NY for conspiracy, a charge that carries a 6-8 year prison sentence and a $250,000 fine. This was the first conspiracy trial of peaceful, anti-war protesters since the Vietnam era. With commentary from Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky and Father Daniel Berrigan.
