Beating Swords into Plowshares by Patrick O’Neill, Outrider Post, January 9. 2020

On April 4, 2018, seven Catholic peace activists broke into a military base to protest nuclear weapons. What motivated them to do it?

I am one of seven Catholic pacifists awaiting sentencing in a Georgia federal court for three felonies and a misdemeanor. The charges stem from an April 4, 2018, protest we organized at Naval Station Kings Bay. Kings Bay is the Southeast home port of six of the Navy’s Trident submarine fleet. We face the likelihood of one-to-three year prison sentences.
