Plowshares update

On 8 June, Catholic peace activist Elizabeth McAlister (80) was sentenced to time already served for her part in a symbolic nuclear disarmament action at the Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base in St. Marys, Georgia, in April 2018 (see PN 2618 – 2619).

The other six members of the Kings Bay Plowshares 7 will be sentenced on 29 and 30 June.

The judge ordered that McAlister – who had already spent 17 months in prison – pay $25 a month until the amount of damage caused by the break-in (estimated at $33,503) was paid back in full by the seven.
