News Flash!!! Youth Witness Against Trident at Bangor Base

Yesterday (Sunday, April 14th) a contingent of young people led a vigil at the Bangor Trident nuclear submarine/weapons base in witness against the scourge of nuclear weapons.  They were also showing solidarity with activists in Scotland who, on the same day, held an action at Faslane, the UK's Trident sub base.

During the vigil the young people held a Skype call with the activists at Faslane. George Rodkey said, "Skyping the Scots was great!  We even sang 'We Shall Overcome' in unison, over skype, across the world to each other!"

We'll have more to share later on yesterday's vigil.  For now, here are a few photos (with thanks to George Rodkey).  More details about the vigil in the earlier announcement.
