FINAL TWO HIROSHIMA DAY RESISTERS IN COURT

ResistersL.A. Catholic Workers Rebecca Casas and Barbara Robinson appeared in Santa Barbara Federal Court on Thursday, November 15, for their arraignment resulting from the Hiroshima Day witness on August 6, 2012. Both entered a guilty plea for trespassing and were given a $150 fine plus court costs. Both stated their refusal to pay the fine and court costs stating they could not cooperate with a system that protects a policy that creates and sustains poverty and homelessness by taking much needed resources for human needs to feed the war machine that will ensure the world’s destruction with nuclear weapons, the most diabolical weapons ever to exist.

VANDENBERG AFB TEST FLIGHT SCHEDULED FOR NOVEMBER 14

Minuteman III Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles are on 24/7 hair-trigger alert in silos in Montana, Wyoming, and North Dakota. They carry thermonuclear warheads at least eight times more powerful than the bomb that destroyed Hiroshima.

These land-based nuclear missiles should be decommissioned immediately–
· They are located in fixed silos, which makes them easy targets for attack;
· There is an incentive to “use them first or lose them”;
· The high-alert status of these weapons could lead to accidental nuclear war;
· The U.S. government consistently criticizes other nations for conducting missile tests;
· These tests are dangerous to the Marshall Islands, the target country;
· Testing these missiles encourages other nations to develop and test their own missiles and nuclear weapons.

Take Action

Join us at www.wagingpeace.org/goto/vandenberg to ask the president to stop these provocative nuclear missile tests and to immediately decommission these missiles.

There will be a protest at 12 noon, Tuesday, November 13, in Santa Barbara, at the corner of State & Anapamu Sts. The Air Force tests missiles under the cover of darkness. We protest them in the light of day. If possible, join us to stop this danger to humanity.
