Dublin FDC Road Trip: “cameras and prisons don’t mix”

Peter Ediger, Mary Lou Anderson, Sarah Thompson and Jim Haber were  returning to the San Francisco Bay Area from Reedley, California after Mary Lou and Jim gave a presentation at the Reedley Peace Center about their recent trip to Afghanistan with Voices for Creative Nonviolence as part of a March, 2011 peace delegation. They decided to stop at the Federal Correctional Institution – Dublin to visit Disarm Now Plowshares prisoner of conscience Susan Crane, but weren’t on the list to visit.  Fr. Louis Vitale met them at the BART station in Pleasanton and all five briefly did visit the prison, though not Susan.  Here’s the evidence (many thanks to Jim Haber):

"wanted a couple photos with anti-nuclear signs outside its walls. Well, the guards insisted that cameras and prisons don't mix, hence the poorly framed, not quite set up well photos."

After fleeing the prison, we took this image outside St. Elizabeth's in Oakland to show what our intent was to look like.
