Lenten Vigils for Disarmament at BIW

February 18
February 21 and 28
March 7, 14, 21, 28
April 4

Starting on Ash Wednesday, February 18, we will gather at Bath Iron Works from 11:30 – 12:30, and we will continue every Saturday of Lent.
We will gather across from the BIW administration building on Washington Street.

We stand against the building of these guided missile warships [cruise missiles and ‘missile defense’ interceptors] here in Maine. We stand together to witness to our absolute need to stop war and our preparations for war. We stand with the innocent, the voiceless, and those grieving because of our failure to see the true costs of war.

Lent is a time to fast from our culture of excess by resisting the temptation of militarism. We need to stand together to express our opposition to this ongoing crime against peace which is the building of these guided missile warships here at BIW.
