Disarm Now Plowshares loses appeal (government loses moral values)

Hot off the presses from Courthouse News Service is news of today’s appelate court ruling on the Disarm Now Plowshares appeal of their conviction for the 2009 Plowshares action at the Bangor Trident submarine base. As usual, U.S. “law” (protecting government property) trumps the Hague Convention, Nuremberg Principles, the laws of war, every precept of international humanitarian law and pretty much every treaty to which the U.S. is a party.

Billions For Life, Not Billions For Death!!!

Friends,

Soon the New Year will be upon us and we’ll have to make New Year’s resolutions.  On the heels of the Disarm Now Plowshares trial, don’t you think a good resolution would be to bring out hundreds of people to block the Bangor gate?

Well, here’s your chance.  Ground Zero Center for Nonviolent Action will host its annual Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday vigil and nonviolent action on Saturday, January 15, 2011, and YOU are invited.  It will be a great day of nonviolence training, preparation culminating with a vigil and nonviolent action at the Bangor gate in the afternoon.  We will also vigil and leaflet in the morning at the Target store at Silverdale Mall.

The Seattle Raging Grannies have been busy planning for the event, and have come up with the perfect theme:  BILLIONS FOR LIFE, NOT BILLIONS FOR DEATH.

The day will include nonviolence training, preparation and a vigil and nonviolent action at the Bangor gate.  Plan to join us on the 15th as we continue to resist Trident.  Bring your nonviolent spirit and something to share for the potluck lunch.
 
If you haven’t joined us before, come on out and find out what it’s all about.  Click here to watch a slideshow of last year’s MLK day event.
