I’ve gotten a bit behind, although Ralph Hutchison has been keeping us informed every step of the way with respect to the Y-12 gang. Here’s a summary of what’s happened since October 13th (paraphrased from Ralph’s reports):
Mike Walli was initially moved from Blount County Jail to the luxurious Irwin County Detention Center on October 13th. He was in the same cell block as Steve Baggarly.
Beth Rosdatter was released from federal custody Tuesday, October 18th from the US marshal’s office in the federal courthouse in Knoxville, TN at according to the marshals. Beth was imprisoned for 30 days (ten days in the Knox County Detention Facility in Knoxville, TN and 20 days in Irwin County Detention Center in Ocilla, GA) for her nonviolent civil resistance action at the Y-12 Nuclear Weapons Complex in Oak Ridge, TN on July 5 2010.
Dennis Duvall was released October 19 from Blount County Jail and enjoyed time in the custody of friends in Knoxville before heading to NYC with Jake Weinstein to visit Occupy Wall Street. Friends got him a $5 jacket from goodwill (the weather turned in Knoxville). They also had a little celebratory dinner on the evening of his release at king tut’s to see him off.
And this just in from Ralph: “thanks to a heads up from kim: the bureau of prisons shows mike walli and steve baggarly at the federal transfer center in oklahoma city. no indication that bonnie [Urfer] has moved; she is still listed ‘in transit.'”
And that’s the Y-12 news for the past couple weeks. I spoke with Bix a week or so ago, and he had not yet heard about reporting to serve his sentence.
And don’t forget – We’re keeping Y-12 resisters’ prison mailing addresses updated at The Nuclear Abolitionist.
Stay tuned and, above all, keep resisting!
