‘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.

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.
