Ithaca Voice: Letters from the Courtroom: Kings Bay Plowshares 7 Trial Unfolds
BRUNSWICK, G.A. — Many readers know that a historic trial is underway in Brunswick, Georgia. Seven citizens, including one from Ithaca, are going up against the U.S. government’s nuclear policies here in Federal Court. They are on trial for entering the Kings Bay Naval Base, home to six Trident submarines carrying enough nuclear weapons to put life on the planet out of business. In April 2018, the seven, all committed Catholics, said “no” to this specter and “symbolically disarmed” the base by cutting through its security fence and peacefully protesting within.
