Mar 17 SUNDAY

The film follows two groups of Catholic nuclear disarmament activists who engaged in nonviolent direct actions known as Plowshares.

Special screening of the documentary by Helen Young. The film follows two groups of Catholic nuclear disarmament activists who engaged in nonviolent direct actions known as Plowshares, following the prophet Isaiah’s mandate to beat swords into plowshares and spears into pruning hooks. The Disarm Now Plowshares entered the Bangor Trident nuclear submarine base in Washington state in 2009 and the Transform Now Plowshares went into the Y-12 nuclear weapons complex in Tennessee in 2012, both groups to challenge the morality and legality of America’s nuclear weapons.
