The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure.

Message to BIW: Convert & deal with coming climate catastrophe



















Twenty-five good hearted souls were arrested in Bath, Maine early this morning as they blocked the entrance road into the Bath Iron Works 'christening' ceremony of the $7 billion Zumwalt 'stealth' destroyer.

In their act of civil resistance they called for the conversion of the shipyard to sustainable production - commuter rail, offshore wind turbines, tidal power systems and the like.  In order to save the future generations from the coming climate catastrophe we must shift wasteful and dangerous military spending to peaceful and sustainable production immediately.

Studies show that by converting military production facilities we would in fact get more jobs in the process.

We thank Regis Tremblay for these great photos.  You can see more of them on Fazebook here.

For a better view click on each photo to enlarge them.

Our love, admiration and thanks go to all who attended the event today in Bath and those who took the step to stand strong for peace, non-violence and a sustainable future.

See the Portland Press Herald coverage where they first reported that 'several' were arrested but an hour after seeing that story they pulled it and scratched any word of the arrests.  Just goes to prove that corporate media has been out sourced to the war machine.
