Standing together in hope of peace through a joyous revolution we hold the Advent Vigil for Disarmament at Bath Iron Works (BIW) in Maine.
We will stand across from the BIW administration building on Washington Street in Bath from 11:30 am til 12:30 on the four Saturdays of Advent: November 26, December 3, 10 & 17.
We will hold signs calling for the end of the building of weapons of mass destruction by General Dynamics here in Maine.
We stand in opposition to the continued production of the Arleigh Burke class of Aegis Destroyers and the new [highly expensive] Zumwalt Destroyers. These are guided missile warships that are nuclear capable.
We stand for hope that mandates that the madness of Theatre Missile Defense and other military offensive operations will end. We stand so the conversion of BIW to peaceful purposes becomes a reality.
If you can, please stand with us as we vigil in hope for peace through disarmament on these four Saturdays anticipating this season of joy!
