Peace Activists Convicted for Anti-Nuke Plowshares Action

Five peace activists have been found guilty for an anti-nuclear Plowshares action at a naval base in Washington state in November 2009. The activists cut a hole in a fence to access the Kitsap-Bangor Naval Base. As they walked onto the grounds of the base, they left a trail of blood and hammered on the roadway. They also hammered on the fences and scattered sunflower seeds throughout the base. The base is used to service Trident nuclear missiles carried by U.S. submarines. Two of the defendants, a nun and a priest, are over 80 years old. Sentencing will be held in March.
