Here’s some nonviolent direct action news from the US from the very brilliant Nuclear Resister.

Protests against US support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen led to 15 arrests at the US mission to the UN in New York on 11 December, and seven arrests at a congressperson’s office in Washington DC on 11 January.

On 28 December, seven people were arrested at a Christian anti-war protest at the Pentagon (during a Holy Innocents Faith and Resistance retreat), and four Catholic Workers were arrested at Iowa national guard drone command centre in Des Moines.

On 27 January, five campaigners with Nevada Desert Experience and Western Shoshone Tribe were arrested after crossing the boundary into the Nevada test site.
