Ellsberg, others arrested in protest at A-arms lab

A private security force arrested Daniel Ellsberg and dozens of other antinuclear demonstrators Monday at a nuclear weapons laboratory where several hundred demonstrators set up a peaceful human blockade.

The lab's security force had arrested more than 100 people charges of obstructing traffic.

Close to 750 demonstrators arrived at the south gate of the nuclear weapons lab by dawn, sitting down en masse at entrances to the facility, which employs 7 ,500 workers.
