An 80-year-old Connecticut woman was sentenced to time served for her role in the April 2018 incident in which a group known as the Plowshares broke into and vandalized Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay in Camden County, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Elizabeth McAlister had served 17 months since her arrest along with six others involved in the symbolic protest at the base, which is home to nuclear powered submarines. Plowshares is a Christian-based pacifist and antinuclear group that supports demonstrative acts of resistance.
