Wild Goose Festival
CPT’s Aboriginal Justice Team will participate in the first annual Wild Goose Festival in North Carolina, 23-26 June, 2011.  Inspired by the long-established Greenbelt festival in the UK, Wild Goose “seeks to nurture a new community movement at the intersection of justice, spirituality and art,” says Festival director Gareth Higgins.  CPT hopes that our storytelling in this first year of the festival can help establish active peacemaking as a central concept of Christian practice for a new generation.  See for details.   

Plowshares Activists Sentenced
On 28 March the five Disarm Now Plowshares activists, who entered U.S. Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor (Washington, USA) in November 2009 to symbolically disarm the nuclear weapons stored there, received sentences ranging from to 6-15 months confinement and one year supervised release.  Long-time CPTer Sr. Anne Montgomery, sentenced to 2 months in jail plus 4 months electronic home monitoring, said “We join those…deprived by our wars and military budget of a human way of life.”  See for addresses to write these prisoners of conscience.
