Lenten Vigils at Bath Iron Works


Lenten Vigils for Disarmament at BIW in Maine

Starting on Ash Wednesday, February 18, we will gather at Bath Iron Works from 11:30 – 12:30, and we will continue every Saturday of Lent (February 21, 28, March 7, 14, 21, 28 and Holy Saturday on April 4) at the same time.  We will gather across from the BIW administration building on Washington Street.  (In particular the March 21 vigil will be expanded as it will be the official Maine site for the nationally called Spring Mobilization for Peace.)

We stand against the building of these guided missile warships [cruise missiles and ‘missile defense’ interceptors] here in Maine.  We stand together to witness to our absolute need to stop war and our preparations for war.  We stand with the innocent, the voiceless, and those grieving because of our failure to see the true costs of war. 

Lent is a time to fast from our culture of excess by resisting the temptation of militarism.  We need to stand together to express our opposition to this ongoing crime against peace which is the building of these guided missile warships here at BIW.
