A group of 12 anti-war activists were found guilty of trespassing Dec.
12 by Hennepin County District Court Judge Lorie Gildea after a half-day
trial. The group had been charged during a July 13 protest at the
headquarters of Alliant Techsystems, Minnesota?s biggest weapons
merchant and the object of relentless protest over its manufacture of
rocket motors, machine guns, bullets and so-called depleted uranium
munitions?the internationally- condemned toxic, radioactive shells used
to smash hardened targets.

The 12 radical pacifists, convicted of violating a new Edina City
ordinance, were each ordered to pay a $142 fine or do 24 hours of
community service.
