Gathering in St. Marys, GA looks to build culture of peace in shadow of Trident nuclear submarine base. #media_7723;left#The Alternative New Year’s Gathering held in St. Marys, GA every year offers peace and justice activists a time for reunion, reflection and rejuvenation. Situated in Crooked River State Park, this year’s annual retreat attracted organizers from Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina who took the opportunity to network, discuss the events of 2004 and plan for the future. It was also a weekend to remember that St. Marys is home to the King’s Bay Naval Base and its Trident Submarines, the second most deadly concentration of nuclear firepower in the world.
