Destroyers built at BIW have begun to port at the new base.
Leslie Manning – Quaker activist will speak about budgets as moral documents and the need to build political support for cutting the bloated Pentagon budget.
Mary Beth Sullivan – Social worker from Bath will speak about how conversion of BIW is possible and could create more jobs by building rail, solar, wind and tidal power systems to help deal with climate change.
