  • Anti-Nuclear Group Conducts Weapons Inspection

    Today is the 53rd anniversary of the U.S. bombing of Hiroshima and the 8th anniversary of the U.S.-led UN sanctions against Iraq. Commemorating these two anniversaries today, a coalition of anti-nuclear groups calling themselves the New England Citizens Weapons Inspection Team will investigate the status of nuclear- armed submarines at the U.S. Navy Submarine Base in Groton, Connecticut. They are attempting to carry out a weapons inspection that mirrors the UNSCOM weapons inspections in Iraq. Currently members of the group are interviewing personnel at the base, and earlier this week they flew a plane over the base and took aerial photographs of Seawolf submarines. The efforts of the coalition have been spearheaded by the Fellowship of Reconciliation.
