Nonviolence, Community, Resistance: Jonah House | WitnessPhoto | disarm-now-plowshares

On Nov. 2, 2009, five people undertook to disarm the Trident II missiles at Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor, as an outcry against the illegality and immorality of such weapons.&bsp; "We are responsible... for this threat of first-strike terrorism hanging over the community of nations, rich and poor...&bsp; Such planning, preparation, and deployment is a blasphemy against the Creator of life, imaged in each human being."
