Disarm Now Plowshares go to trial .....

Subversive Peacemaking

Monday, December 06, 2010


Dear Friends,


Tomorrow [Dec. 7] at 9:00AM the Disarm Now Plowshares 5 will attempt to put

Trident on trial, a near impossibility in a court system that is so

woven so deeply into our violent nation, one that continues to

dispatch Trident nuclear submarines to patrol the oceans, with enough

missiles (with their multiple warheads) to end life on Earth as we

know it.


And yet, as Father John Dear reminds us, "With the God of peace, even

the impossible is possible!"  We come together this week to support

the Disarm Now Plowshares 5; both physically and in spirit, we are

with them throughout this difficult time.


The week begins with tonight's Festival Of Hope.  Tomorrow morning at

8:00AM we will gather in front of the Courthouse to vigil and prepare

for trial.  Please check the Disarm Now Plowshares "Events" page for

the most up-to-date information on trial and events times.  I've

attached the full week's events schedule.


I invite you to not only come to vigil at the Courthouse and attend

the evening events, but I ask you to bring family, friends, coworkers

- especially people who are not yet (knowledgeable about or) engaged

in the struggle for a nuclear weapons-free (and just and peaceful)

world.  It is so important to show the world that the Disarm Now

Plowshares are not alone; that we are all in solidarity with them and

this just cause and will bear witness to what the government does in

this trial.


If you will join us at the evening potlucks please bring an item to

share with the community.


Bring nonviolent spirit and signs to the courthouse vigils.


If you cannot join us (physically) be sure to keep up by checking the

Disarm Now Plowshares Blog for daily updates.  There are new posts and

videos (see Video page) up now.


Please also share Disarm Now Plowshares with others!


In Solidarity as we struggle together to do the impossible,




P.S.- My emails during the trial week will be coming from

subversivepeacemaking@gmail.com since I will be using web-based email

while working from other computers.
