Susan Crane has been released from prison! In 1997 Susan Crane, along with 4 other people, boarded a navy ship at Bath Iron Works in Maine. In a symbolic, nonviolent Swords into Plowshares action against the ship’s nuclear weapons arsenal, the activists poured their blood on and pounded on the weapons bays of the Navy’s Ship. Susan had already served a previous sentence for another action in which she and Steve Kelly effectively disarmed a Trident nuclear missle casing at a Bay Area nuclear weapons manufactory (Lockheed Martin).
