As sentencing began in the cases of seven Catholic peace activists who were convicted for acts of civil disobedience during a protest against nuclear weapons in the USA, more Religious communities in England and Wales have pledged to consider divesting from companies that produce nuclear weapons.

On Monday Elizabeth McAlister, a Catholic peace activist, was sentenced to time served, three years’ supervised probation and $34,000 (US) restitution, a total that will be shared with the other defendants.
