Four protesters arrested at Stryker meeting
By William Cole
Posted on: Wednesday, October 29, 2003

Four protesters were arrested last night at Honolulu Country Club during
the first of six public meetings scheduled by the Army to discuss its
planned $1.5 billion Stryker Brigade.

In an escalation from the sharp words that sometimes are directed at
military expansions, last night's meeting saw Royal Guard Security Inc.
personnel stop a group of about 15 individuals with protest signs from
entering the exclusive Salt Lake golf course.

After repeated warnings not to come onto the private property with the
signs, four individuals were arrested and handcuffed by Honolulu police.

Police said they would be charged with trespassing.

A group member said last night that all four posted $250 bail and were
released. A hearing date has been set for Friday, she said.

At the first meeting on the draft environmental impact statement for a
Stryker brigade of 300 armored vehicles, Army officials said protesters
were welcome  without the signs and banners.
