HeadlineMar 05, 2024

In Connecticut, five anti-nuclear activists connected to the Catholic Worker movement were arrested Monday for blocking the gates at a General Dynamics plant in New London, where the Columbia-class nuclear submarines are being designed and constructed. During the action, a group of 20 protesters held life-sized images of Robert Oppenheimer, the “father of the atomic bomb,” with a banner reading, “Don’t be a 'Destroyer of Worlds' — Stop the Columbia Sub.”
