ANN ARBOR- Faced with the choice between community service and jail for taking part in a 1 986 protest against contra aid, Gaia Kile served a three day sentence in the Washtenaw County jail. Kile was one of 1 18 protesters arrested at Congressperson Cari Pursell's Ann Arbor office. "Going to jail is an act of continued protest against the U.S.-sponsored war in Nicaragua," said Kile in a press statement. "The war continĂșes.. . When the vote on aid for the contras comes up in May I will return to Cari Pursell's office to resist the U.S. war against Nicaragua. I encourage others to join me."
