‘Lessons from Indigenous Struggles to Dismantle the Nuclear Beast: Clare Grady, Kings Bay Plowshares7’

TUE April 16, 2019. 4-515pm. Friends 309, Ithaca College; public welcome

 About a year ago, on April 4th 2018, seven anti-nuclear activists secretly entered Kings Bay Naval Base, GA—one of the largest nuclear submarine bases in the world—under the cover of night. Their goal was to symbolically disarm the six nuclear ballistic missile submarines kept there. Each submarine carries 20 Trident thermonuclear weapons. One year after this historic action, three of the Plowshares activists remain jailed in Georgia. The other four are out on $50,000 bond with electronic ankle monitors. All seven face up to 25 years in prison for their actions. Global leaders, activists and scholars, including Nobel Peace Prize-winning South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Daniel Ellsberg and Noam Chomsky, released a petition addressed to U.S.Attorney General William Barr demanding all charges against the Kings Bay 7 be dropped immediately.

The Office of Student Engagement is looking for a faculty or staff member interested in advising a student trip to Boston from May 13 - May 18 as part of the Summer Service Trip Program.
