Missile Silo N-8, CO, September 15, 2011

Friends,

I’ve just received this photo from Felice and Jack Cohen (of the Nuclear Resister).  In the foreground is a tribute to Sr. Jackie Hudson.  In the background you can see the sign saying “N-8”, designating the N-8 Minuteman III missile site in Colorado where Jackie, Carol Gilbert and Ardeth Platte carried out the Sacred Earth and Space Plowshares II action on the morning of October 6, 2002 symbolically disarming a first-strike 300 kiloton (20 times the yield of the Hiroshima bomb) Minuteman III nuclear missile (truly a weapon of MASS destruction) with household hammers and their own blood.

And so, Jackie returns to the scene of the (government’s) crime.

Jackie Hudson, Presente!
