The first issue of the Nuclear Resister (NR) newsletter was published in October 1980 and coincidentally contained just one action report: that of the Plowshares Eight, the very first nuclear disarmament action fulfilling the words of the prophet Isaiah “to beat swords into plowshares, and spears into pruning hooks.” NR coordinators Jack and Felice Cohen-Joppa have continued the work of reporting on nonviolent resistance for a nuclear-free future since then – for the past 33 years from Tucson – with assistance from hundreds of people.

This event is a fundraiser to help with travel expenses to Georgia to attend the October 21 trial in federal court of the Kings Bay Plowshares (KBP). Jack and Felice are providing jail support for one of the KBP, Fr. Steve Kelly SJ, who has been in a Georgia county jail since the April 2018 action.
