During Ground Zero’s Mother’s Day vigil at the Trident nuclear submarine base, five demonstrators blocked the main highway entrance into the base for over 20 minutes. The five demonstrators entered the highway carrying two large banners stating, “Congress Wants $1 Trillion For Nukes – What will be left for our children” and “Trident Threatens All Life On Earth” and blocked all incoming traffic at the Bangor Main Gate.. They were removed from the highway by the Washington State Patrol.

All five demonstrators were cited for violating RCW 46.61.250, Pedestrians on roadways, and released at the scene. Those cited by the Washington State Patrol: Brenda McMillan and Caroline Wildflower of Port Townsend; Sue Ablao of Bremerton; Elizabeth Murray of Poulsbo; and Michael “Firefly” Siptroth of Belfair.

Supporters are welcome to join a brief pre-hearing vigil in front of the courthouse on the day of the hearings, beginning at 1 pm. Ground Zero members will bring “Abolish Nuclear Weapons” signs, as well as a leaflet to offer to people passing by.
