Starting on Ash Wednesday, February 10th, we will gather to vigil, hold
signs and banners and to leaflet the workers at Bath Iron Works from 11:30 am to
12:30 and then continue it every Saturday of Lent at the same time. (February
13, 20, 27, March 5, 12, 19, and Holy Saturday March 26.)
We will gather across from the BIA administration building on Washington
Street in Bath standing with signs calling for the end of the building of
weapons of mass destruction by General Dynamics here in Maine.
Lent is a time to awaken to what we are doing that keeps us from healing
our Mother Earth from all the violence our technological society continues to
inflict upon us. The Aegis guided missile destroyers and the new Zumwalt
‘stealth’ destroyer are crimes against life.
Please join us for an hour on these Saturdays as we witness in hope for a
nonviolent world through disarmament.
