Savannah to Kings Bay, GA, Disarm Trident Peace Walk September 3-14

Start: Friday, September 07, 2018 9:00 AM

End: Friday, September 14, 2018 5:00 PM


We will walk in solidarity with the Kings Bay Plowshares Seven, calling for the abolition of the Trident submarines and all nuclear weapons. Savannah is the home of Gulfstream, a business jet manufacturer wholly owned by General Dynamics, contractor for the making of the Tridents and one of the largest military contractors in the world. Kings Bay Naval Base is the home to six Trident subs, each one having the explosive capacity of at least 5,000 and up to 9,000 Hiroshimas. We will walk in nonviolence and prayer with the hope of bending the moral arc of the world towards justice and peace.

The Trident fleet and underwater sea training cuts into the habitat and calving grounds for right whales...perhaps we'll have more accompaniment than we can easily imagine as we clamor to abolish Trident and all nuclear weapons. (Thanks to Russell Wray who told us about how the Trident fleet also threatens the right whale, a species already facing extinction.)
