Disarm Now Plowshares
Trident: Illegal + Immoral
November 2, 2009 - All Souls Day
Five people arrested on Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor, WA
Bill “Bix” Bischel, S.J., 81; Susan Crane, 65; Lynne Greenwald, 60;
Steve Kelly, S.J., 60; Anne Montgomery RSCJ, 83
Participants cut fences and walked
onto Strategic Weapons Facility grounds,
carrying a banner, trailing blood, and scattering sunflower seeds.
They hammered symbolically for disarmament.
"As U.S. citizens we are responsible under the Nuremberg Principles
for this threat of first-strike terrorism
hanging over the community of nations, rich and poor.
Moreover, such planning, preparation, and deployment
is a blasphemy against the Creator of life, imaged in each human being."
