Experiments with truth: 11/3/09

  • Five peace activists were arrested Monday for entering a naval base in Bangor, Washington as part of a Plowshares action. The activists cut a hole in a fence to access the base. As they walked onto the grounds of the base, they left a trail of blood and hammered on the roadway and fences, and scattered sunflower seeds throughout the base. The base is used to service Trident nuclear missiles carried by US submarines.
