Plowshares Project

The Plowshares Nuns traveled today to Denver, CO to begin a presence outside the Prosecutor’s Office. They are asking that cans of food be sent to him for distribution to needy families of military people at the local air force bases. 4,000 – 6,000 cans of food from people all over the country would more than compensate for the more than $3,000. in restitution that they owe.

Here is their plea…

AN OPEN LETTER from SACRED EARTH AND SPACE PLOWSHARES II, 2002

Dear friends,

We need your help!  Please join us in our response to the judge, prosecutor, and probation officers to complete our restitution issue.

Through prayer, discernment and an inspired action, we are conducting a canned food drive that will be donated to children of Air Force military families who receive food stamps and/or are on public assistance.  We believe that we must collect at least 4,000 cans of food or more to fulfill the comparable amount for our restitution.

Please put a can or number of cans of healthy food in a padded envelope or box and send it now.  (Important weeks are from Nov. 15 – 29 with Thanksgiving included.  (Information below)

Attention:
We have printed a coupon for your use.  Put it inside the package with the can(s).  Then,  please mail it.
Send no money, please!

If you live in the Denver, CO area we are outside the U.S. Attorney’s Office Building, 1225 17th St. each work day from 11 A.M. to 1 P.M from November 15 -28th (except week-ends and holidays when public buildings are closed).  Come see us, drop off your donation and hear our voices of appreciation.

 We hope and pray that this will put to rest our restitution mandate and requirement.

BACKGROUND:
l. The judge denied our alternative restitution plan he requested in November, 2005.
2. The prosecutor rejected the plan unless the Air Force receives our response as victim.
3. The prosecutor knows that we are prohibited from going onto a military site for community service according to our supervised release prohibitions.
4. We sincerely have worked hard to do many services in lieu of restitution and trust this inspired idea to give canned food to the children of Air Force families who are in need will complete the requirement.

Children are the most vulnerable in war under the bombs and in military families as their parent(s) are separated from them.

We thank you in advance for your assistance!  Let us continue our work together for disarmament and peace.

From:  Jackie Hudson, O.P., Carol Gilbert, O.P. and Ardeth Platte, O.P.
