Marching in the rain to US Croughton Air Force Base near Oxford, England

Decorating the fence line at Croughton satellite communication and joint intelligence base. Space communications, drones, bomber guidance, missile defence and command & control functions all happen there.  

Way up north in England's Yorkshire moors these intrepid peaceniks held banners in the rain outside the Fylingdales US and NATO missile 'defence' radar.

Vigil across from the Bath Iron Works administration building in Maine where Navy Aegis destroyers are built which carry interceptor missiles on-board that have proven to function as anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons

Assembling for the vigil at BIW.  People came from all over the state and beyond.

Closing out the BIW vigil we stood on the steps of the administration building and got the photo taken just before security chased us off their 'property'.  Following the vigil we held a pot luck lunch and a meeting to discuss our plans to hold non-violent civil resistance action at the next 'christening' of a destroyer at the shipyard - date not yet known.
