Catholic Workers have been organising regular acts of witness at Northwood HQ for thirteen years. The Northwood HQ is a nerve centre for British military operations around the world. As the Permanent Joint Forces HQ it is the command and control centre for army, navy, air force, special forces and Trident nuclear submarines. The base also hosts EU and NATO headquarters.
As a central point in the projection of British military force around the world Northwood HQ continues to victimise the innocent to protect British power and status as Herod’s operatives did in biblical times.
Today’s act of witness followed the Annual Faith and Resistance retreat at the Catholic Worker Farm, at which Catholic Workers and friends reflect on how God is calling us to side with the innocent victims of violence and injustice today.
