Occupy group plans to picket Bangor base
December 29, 2011 · 9:55 AM
A nonviolent occupy group says it will honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by gathering in protest of Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor on Jan. 14 at 9 a.m.
Ground Zero Center for Nonviolent Action claims that their style of “vigil and nonviolent direct action” against nuclear weapons follows the example set by the famed civil rights activist.
The group, whose slogan is “Resist Trident” has been protesting the nuclear presence in the area since 1976.
Occupy activities will include nonviolence training and action planning, leading up to the launch of an inflatable, full-scale Trident D-5 missile in Seattle’s MLK Day parade on Jan. 16.
