Pleas for Kings Bay 7

The Kings Bay Ploughshares activists were still awaiting sentencing in the US when PN went to press. They face up to 10 years in prison each.

Supporters are organising a letter-writing campaign, writing to the judge ahead of sentencing. No date for sentencing had been set at the time of going to press. It might be in February.

The seven were convicted in October of trespass, ‘depredation’ and destruction of government property and conspiracy, after breaking into a US Trident submarine base on 4 April 2018.
