Activists hung a banner from a highway overpass near the maingate of the Bangor Naval Submarine Base. The Banner contains a message from Dr. MLK Jr.: "When scientific power outruns spiritual power, we end up with guided missiles and misguided men." The nonviolent direct action to obstruct entrance to the submarine base was coordinated by the Ground Zero Center for Nonviolent Action in celebration of Dr. King's life, work and birthday. He would have been 78 years old on Monday.

  1. Your commitment to peace and justice is so admirable. I learned a lot about the Trident site by reading your links. Thank you.
