a massive escalation of non-violence

Salon.com, The antiwar movement prepares to escalate.

Vandenberg is about 50 miles north Santa Barbara, Calif. In a few days, activists will start converging on a nearby four-acre plot of land that Bud Boothe, a World War II veteran, donated to the Military Globalization Project. They're going to camp there and train to breach the base's security and possibly vandalize some of its equipment.

Lumsdaine, the Military Globalization Project coordinator [mgpnofate.org], is a 48-year-old who has been arrested at Vandenberg twice. He describes the base as the electronic nerve center of the global-surveillance-targeting, weapons-guidance, and military-command satellites that will largely direct the war.
San Jose Mercury News, Vandenberg Air Force Base authorizes 'deadly force' against trespassing protesters.
Vandenberg officials revealed Friday that military security police may shoot to kill, if necessary, to protect base residents and machinery. The directive has always been in existence, but a base spokeswoman said it is more critical now that people understand its severity.

It's impossible for us to determine what their intent is, she said. Are they protesters? Are there terrorists in that group and (do) they plan on killing everyone on base?
