Nuclear Bombers in VT
April 22, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Join Citizens Against Nuclear Bombers in Vermont (CANBVT), Safe and Green Campaign, and other concerned citizens in a discussion about the F-35 nuclear bombers soon to be based in Burlington. Dr. Ira Hefland of Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR) is our featured speaker for the night. Come get informed on the bombers and what it means to have them based in our state on Monday, April 22nd 6:00pm Centre Congregational Church, 193 Main Street in Brattleboro. We will meet in the Parlor.
The F-35 planes will come to the National Guard base in northern Vermont this September. Nothing about nuclear bomb capability was brought up in the planning process that approved the aircraft being sited in Vermont. The first information the nuclear weapon capability and mission of the F-35 came to light in the 2018 Nuclear Posture Review. For example:
“The United States is incorporating nuclear capability onto the forward-deployable, nuclear-capable F-35 as a replacement for the current aging DCA (dual capable aircraft). ” — (2018 Nuclear Posture Review, Introduction, page X-XI)
